Reid recently published the pitch deck he used to raise money for LinkedIn in 2004, when it didn’t have a dime in revenue, from Greylock Partners. Alongside the original slides, he includes historical context and relevant pitch advice for entrepreneurs. It’s a treasure trove of information. Mandatory reading for anyone raising money from VCs, or anyone looking for context on the amazing company Reid co-founded. In a separate post, he also summarizes more briefly his top overall lessons on pitching VCs.
Special thanks to Ian Alas on our team who spent several months working on this. It will go down as a piece of Silicon Valley history.
