What are fund decks?

Much like the founders of startups they invest in, GPs (general partners) of VC firms must pitch LPs (limited partners) to raise funds. Fund pitch decks are an instrumental tool for fund managers & partners in the process of securing LP backing. Typically, a fund deck (or instead, a tear sheet) is sent around to capture LP interest for pitch meetings.

Starting any new fund starts with building a compelling pitch deck. To aid you in the process of doing so, below are a selection of fund deck examples that successfully secured LP funding for various different venture funds. You may notice that most fund decks follow a common formula, covering many of the same key topics (ie. thesis, dealflow, track record, etc.)
