Asking for a Hustler

Deck Feedback for Worksense

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 less-than-10-minute video, the Docs dive into Worksense, a company that is seeking to replace the age-old "company survey" by building an AI solution to analyze sentiment from team communications in Slack and other channels.

What they do

Worksense is the people analytics platform that boosts sentiment and productivity by offering automatic, anonymized insights. It can automatically:

  • Capture sentiment, performance, and recruiting data by itself
  • Generate reports and actionable insights from the data
  • Easily connect with your most used SaaS tools

Show Notes

  • The Docs kick off today's episode by discussing an odd, but truly memorable, bullet point on the team intro slide.
  • Then, they pull out the exciting founding story and strong accelerator backing that was hidden in plain sight.
  • Next, in a feat of "headline ZIP filing," the Docs take a 15-word solution statement and bring it down to just three. You can decide if this is strong copywriting or if they took it too far ...
  • Last, but certainly not least, the Docs bring some data into a product slide, connecting an already strong value proposition with clear results.

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.
