Investor Pitch Deck Evaluation


Your Future Is Decided in 3 Minutes & 44 Seconds

Your Future Is Decided in 3 Minutes and 44 SecondsThat's the average amount of time an investor takes to look at a pitch deck, according to a recent Harvard Business School study.In order to capture attention quickly, you need to be able to focus on the most important details, on the right slides, and in the right order.A badly-constructed pitch deck has all the potential of denying you that much-needed investment, no matter how much customer traction you can demonstrate.I'll help you produce a high-quality pitch deck that sends the right message to your potential investors, hooks them in, and leaves them wanting to know more.


I'm Trevor O'Hara

I've spent the last two decades developing technology and hospitality innovations in the airport industry. I've led international teams across 20 countries and have lived in 12 countries.Airports are at the crossroads of many innovations in security, retail, technology, hospitality, and space planning. I've had the fortune of assessing hundreds of investment pitches on behalf of private and institutional investors across a wide range of innovative projects.I've also been on the other side of the table seeking investment. I've had many crushing experiences in front of investors - because I didn't know my numbers, or because I came across as too naive or unprepared in my answers. I learned the hard (and best) way.But I've also successful raised millions of dollars myself for three different startups. I've had two failures and one successful exit to my name. I'm also an active investor myself. After assessing hundreds of pitches, I know what makes a winning pitch.

Make it memorable!

Investors see hundreds of pitches every day. Give the investor 3 reasons to remember you:

  • Story: why are you doing this?

  • Skin in the game: why you?

  • Scalability: how will it grow?

If you confuse, you lose!

Remember, the purpose of your pitch is to get a foot in the door. Here's why most pitches fail in that objective:

  • Failure to hook the reader in the first two pages

  • Failure to address a clear problem

  • No investment deal

  • Too much detail or too little info

  • Unwieldy slide deck

Do NOT Outsource Your
Business Plan or Pitch!

One of my side gigs is a finance and investment editing agency called Scrifted.co. I do it because I meet great people and it leads to a ton of really interesting opportunities.But one of the things I get asked often is: "Trevor, can you write my pitch?"My answer is always "no!" That's because I've come to the conclusion that people who can't write their own business plan don't know their own business. And for me at least, that's an "uninvestable" business.And investors immediately pick up on it. Remember - writing is thinking. Writing a pitch forces you to think about every aspect of your business in a very structured way. There's nowhere to hide. And it also forces you to get good at MESSAGING! So don't throw the opportunity away. Write your pitch and then send it to us.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the service work?

Simply choose the service you want. Once you've paid, send me a pdf version of your pitch to admin@trevorohara.com, together with a copy of your payment receipt. One of our investors will send you an email confirming receipt of your pitch. The timestamp on the email marks the beginning of the time window for return of your assessment, depending on which package you have purchased.

What's the delivery time?

Delivery times are calculated in business days, excl. public holidays and depends on the service you order. Time starts the moment I send you a note confirming receipt of your doc and order.

What shall I send?

You wouldn't dare clog up an investor's inbox with multiple documents, so please send only one document - your pitch! The pitch must be in .pdf format and be less then 25MG file size.

Can I call you before?

Nope! That would not be fair to you. I need to see the pitch in the cold light of day, in the same way that an investor would view your pitch. Believe me, first impressions really count.

What are revisions?

Once you receive our feedback, you're free to amend your pitch and then re-submit. I'll then give you my feedback of your improved pitch via a Loom video link. Makes it more personal too.

Why 3 reviewers?

To ensure it's balanced and objective. Reviewers stay anonymous: "Reviewer 1" for a category will not be the same as "Reviewer 1" for another. That way we remove the bias.
