Pitch Deck Handbook: Roadmap Slide
The Roadmap Slide helps investors gain clarity on where you have been, where you are, and where you are going with your company. This slide should include a timeline with; What you have done, what you are doing, what you will be doing, and simplistic date ranges in which these things will happen in. Typically, the Roadmap Slide is either located after the Market Slide or after the Traction Slide.
Purpose of the Roadmap Slide
Without a clear picture of where you have been and where you are going, investors will have little clarity on what their money is going towards in the future of your company. Remember, “Money loves clarity.”
The Roadmap slide is all about painting this picture in a clear, simplistic manner that can be logically followed and connected to the points that you’ve made before about traction, new markets, etc.
The purpose of the Roadmap slide is to paint a short term, actionable picture and a long term, big vision picture (this can be broken into two slides).
