Building a Presentation in Under 24 hours

Building a Presentation in Under 24 hours

I really only had about 6 hours to create it and practice it.

Unfortunately, the pdf format of this kills the nice walk-through of slide 7.
If you need help creating a presentation or help to present it, especially if you are a startup working on your pitch deck, contact me so my team can help you.
