Asking for a Hustler

Deck Feedback for Eltra

This is Second Opinion, a newsletter created by your friends Deck Doctors and Hustle Fund VC, where we give honest, tactical feedback to founders about their pitch decks.

In this week's 8-ish-minute video, the Docs give advice on Eltra's pitch deck slides. The result? An updated deck that helps Eltra stand out as an industry leader in a niche market.

What they do

Eltra is a company working electric boosters (aka attachable electric engines) for vehicles (gas or electric). 

Show Notes

  • The Docs introduce a more futuristic look and feel to show that the Eltra team has strong "taste."
  • They consolidate a complex problem into something digestible, and slightly controversial to grab audience's attention.
  • They talk about how to stand-out when your team slide has some holes in it. The Eltra founder is smart, but doesn't have founder experience. Indexing on his personality and his strong-suits helped add more creds.
  • Finally, the Docs jam on ways Eltra could truly differentiate their go-to-market strategy with some outside-the-box thinking.

Reminder of how this works

Here's how this whole operation works: founders submit their decks to be reviewed by filling out this form.

The Deck Doctors review the deck, then record a video with tactical suggestions on how to improve it. Our aim: to help founders land more meetings with investors. There is no money exchanged, no favoritism, and no judgments.
