YCombinator has released a new pitch deck template that has received criticism for being too basic and not visually appealing.
Understandably, the template was intended to serve as a blank canvas for founders to add their own branding and style. Still, it may only be suitable for presenting to investors with significant modifications.
The problem of creating a poorly designed pitch deck is often due to the difficulty of balancing the content and design of a presentation using tools like PowerPoint, Google Slides, and Keynote.
Slidebean aims to solve this problem by allowing users to focus on the content of their slides and automatically apply a professional design. Therefore, we have redesigned the YCombinator pitch deck using our platform and provided some alternative styles for consideration. This revised version follows the structure suggested by YCombinator, but with a more modern and polished look. You can download this template as a PDF or edit it for free using Slidebean.
