What is it

This template will provide you a structure to work from to prepare a pitchdeck to present your company in record time to external experts joining your team for a day so that, together, you prototype relevant solutions for your business.

If you're running a workshop with external participants, this will serve as a supporting document when pitching your business to newcomers.
