The original Puptimize Pitch Deck raised $980,000 in convertible debt at a $2.9M cap with a 20% discount and 3.25% interest rate. The company had also raised $225k in a previous angel round.
When it comes to creating a pitch deck, it's easy to focus on the numbers and data, but what sets Puptimize's deck apart is their emphasis on storytelling and structure. Each slide in their deck is crafted to not only convey information but also to tell a compelling story that keeps the audience engaged.
One of the key elements that Puptimize uses in their deck is a clear narrative throughout. From the introduction to the conclusion, there is a clear flow that takes the audience on a journey through the company's history, current state, and future plans. This not only helps the audience understand the company better but also makes it easier for them to remember key points later on.
In addition to the narrative, Puptimize also applies a lot of structure to each slide. They use a consistent design and layout, making it easy for the audience to follow along. They also use simple but effective visual aids, such as charts and graphics, to break up the text and make the information more digestible. This not only helps to keep the audience's attention but also makes the deck more visually appealing.
Puptimize also uses many storytelling techniques to make the deck more engaging. They use anecdotes, relatable examples, and even jokes to make the information more interesting. They also use many images and videos to help the audience visualize the company and what they do.
Puptimize is an intelligent marketplace that makes it easy to be a great dog owner. Free training and education, expert-recommended products, and trusted local vets are some of the features of this project.
The app aimed to make it easy for dog owners to train their pets and offers a variety of mobile and web tools. Initially, it would provide free, personalized dog training where users could select the commands, skills, games, or tricks they wanted their dogs to learn and receive a custom training plan.
Puptimize used gamification to increase user engagement and training efficacy. Each lesson included a list of expert-recommended products that could be purchased through the app using Amazon's affiliate program, earning Puptimize 8.0%+ commissions while leveraging Amazon's brand, product selection, and fulfillment capabilities.
Additionally, contextually relevant products and trusted local services would be embedded throughout the tools and content.
