    After meeting with Y Combinator partners about his pitch deck, this Founder shares his #1 takeaway: don’t cram the whole story on your pitch.

    It’s true for demo days, but also for any other occasion to pitch.

    The objective is to take the conversation where you want it to go.

    But don’t forget to cover the bases.

    Don’t omit business model or the ask because it will not put VCs in the right mood if they have to ask.

    But you can say “We use a subscription-based model” vs entering into excruciating details on your 12-column pricing table.
