How does PitchQuest® work?


PitchQuest® is an online education program that provides startup founders with a system of strategic thinking, including the tools and templates required to create a pitch deck. The system is built from the Creator's own IP based on their process of creating a pitch deck. Throughout the PitchQuest® program, you’ll be trained on how to develop your pitch using the tools, frameworks and pre-designed templates provided; with each mission guiding your thinking as you develop your content. Unlike other online training programs, PitchQuest® is interactive and utilises gamification and neuro-linguistic programming techniques to offer a platform of learning that is not only easy to use, but fun! That's why we call it a Quest! You'll complete PitchQuest® feeling confident about pitching to investors.

Does A PitchQuest® Pitch Deck Guarantee Investment?


A PitchQuest® user who follows the complete education course module-by-module, develops the thinking as instructed and creates a thoroughly concepted pitch deck will give themselves the best chance of securing investment. However, we make no warranty or guarantee of any kind that by using our products and services you will experience any specific level of earnings or that you will secure investment for your startup. There are many independent factors that determine whether a startup business succeeds in securing investment and in growing as a successful business, all of which vary from person to person and are outside of our control. By using our products and services you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for creating your own results. Our interpretation of “results” is completion of the PitchQuest® program and the creation of a finished pitch deck.




Will PitchQuest® Help Me Find & Secure An Investor?


We do not offer investment and we do not provide introductions or referrals to investors (including venture capitalists, banks, private investors or financial institutions). We cannot and do not offer direct financial advice, nor are we responsible for any financial decisions you make. As always, it is your sole responsibility to discuss the legality or financial soundness of any decision you make with an independent and qualified professional before making such a decision. We are not offering financial support, funding or a “get rich quick” scheme.




Can't I just Google "Pitch Deck Template" and get it for free?


It's true that there are lots of free pitch deck powerpoint templates on the internet, but there's a couple of problems. Firstly, they are generally badly designed and don't often have all the slide types that a standard pitch deck requires. Secondly, they are just powerpoint templates. They don't help you come up with the content to put on your slides, or tell you how to develop the upfront thinking in order to write your pitch deck. For example, how can you put a slide together showing a proof of your concept, such as; "83% surveyed said they would buy our product once it launches", if you haven't gone out to the market, met with your ideal target customer and done some research with them? If you know how to do that, go for it! If you're not sure, PitchQuest is for you! PitchQuest guides you through this thinking so you can do the work that comes before you sit down to create the pitch deck itself. And because we really want you to succeed, we also give you pre-designed, editable templates with instructions for how to create the slides.
