32 Pitch Decks Used by Content Creators and Influencer Companies

  • The creator economy is attracting the attention of venture capitalists – and their portfolios.
  • Creator-focused startups are raising millions of dollars.
  • Here are the pitch decks that 32 startups used during the Series A, seed, and pre-seed rounds.

The creator economy has given rise to a new generation of startups, from influencer marketing companies to new social media experiments.

These startups have attracted the attention and wallets of influential angel and venture capitalists in recent years, giving rise to several unicorn valuations in the space, such as the link-in-bio service Linktree (valued at 1 .3 billion in 2022) and affiliate marketing platform LTK (valued at $2 billion at the end of 2021).

Even though the economy has weathered the changing tides and investment has slowed across all sectors, some startups in this sector continue to raise funds.

Several startups have announced seven-figure fundraising rounds in 2023, including Web3-inspired social network Seam Social’s $2.5 million round in December. Last year also saw several follow-on funding rounds, like that of Whop, an e-commerce marketplace for digital goods, which announced its $17 million Series A in July. Karat, a financial startup for creators, raised a $70 million Series B in June – although it proves that a big venture capital round does not guarantee stability, since the company subsequently proceeded to layoffs in October.

Here is 16 creator economy startups that raised the most money in 2023.

So how do creator economy startups get these investments? Often this starts with a pitch deck.

Lumanu, a creator-focused financial startup, uses a simple pitch deck that’s more like a “conversation guide,” its co-founder and CEO Tony Tran told BI.

“My pitch is always why, what, how and why now?” » said Tran. (Read the full pitch deck here.)

Skye, a career coaching startup, had different pitch decks depending on the type of investor or fund they pitched their project to.

“I had two different versions, depending on the fund,” said Jessica Wolf, CEO of Skye and one of its co-founders. “If I knew a fund was more focused on pre-seed, and focused solely on the founder, I had one deck of cards. But if I knew they were passionate about numbers, I would use another deck .”

Each startup has a different approach.

Some, like Throne, even ditch the pitch deck altogether and opt for an email or Notion document.
