I create outstanding investor
For over ten years I have worked closely with founders to perfect their pitching materials and technique.
My approach is bespoke; it isn’t about pitch deck templates, or cookie cutting. This is about taking each story and making it the best it can be, for an investor audience.
A startup founder will hear the phrase “send me your deck” a lot. You need a great deck that generates excitement and gets you the meeting, but then you need to be able to tell a great story face to face, whether you are using the deck or not, and whether you have thirty minutes or ten. That’s why I focus on both.
I create crisp clean decks that weave stories in the most compelling way, decks founders love using. I also work on verbal delivery to immediately grab the attention and make the investor see the opportunity the same way you do.
“Our story was in the middle of an evolution when we engaged Claire. I knew what my vision was for Yo-Yo but working with her really helped me to cut out all the noise and refine my thoughts. Ultimately she built us a great deck that we used extensively…and we just closed a $30m round. I really enjoyed working with her and highly recommend.”

Who I am
Over the last ten years I have worked on 100s of pitches at all stages. From seed pitches to angels, venture capital at Series A through later stage fundraising, private equity exits and IPOs.
I get involved whenever there is a need. It might be right at the start when the deck is being put together, or it might be honing delivery just days before investor conversations are due to begin.
Pitch creation + delivery
I create the content for a full suite of investor materials from scratch. The one-pager, a superset of slides and the short pitch deck, and then hone the verbal messaging for confident and persuasive delivery.
Pitch review + delivery
I review your existing pitch deck, restructuring and creating additional slides where necessary. I then focus heavily on your verbal messaging, making sure the story flows, elevating your key messages, cutting out the noise and clearly articulating your investment opportunity.
