The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint

Guy Kawasaki writes:

a PowerPoint presentation should have ten slides, last no more than twenty minutes, and contain no font smaller than thirty points. While Im in the venture capital business, this rule is applicable for any presentation to reach agreement: for example, raising capital, making a sale, forming a partnership, etc.

The ten topics that a venture capitalist cares about are:

1. Problem
2. Your solution
3. Business model
4. Underlying magic/technology
5. Marketing and sales
6. Competition
7. Team
8. Projections and milestones
9. Status and timeline
10. Summary and call to action
