What should be included in the pitch deck?

The pitch deck should provide a comprehensive impression of your team and solution. Here are some questions you can use to guide your pitch deck:

  • Can you introduce your startup? What is its mission and vision?
  • What backgrounds does your team have, in terms of relevant work experience, scientific exposure, and so on?
  • What general problem is your solution intended to address?
  • What is your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)?
  • How does your solution specifically address issues faced by Deutsche Bahn?
  • How do you propose to tackle the current use cases and challenges?
  • Have you already tested or implemented your solution with other companies (can you provide references)?
  • Can you describe a proposed roadmap (including key milestones) for a 100-day proof of concept?
  • What could a further collaboration look like after the startup program?
  • Can you share a brief overview of your financial Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), investment activity, funding, and so on?
