Was a pitch deck course really necessary?
In fact, it’s the first online course we rolled out. Why? Because despite dozens of videos and thousands of blog post lines written on the subject, startup founders still produce pitch decks that nobody understands. The worse part? They are not even aware of it. But they keep wondering why VCs don’t call back. We know, we are investors ourselves.
what are this track's objectives?
Fix your deck to unlock your potential.
You’re here because you know the truth: copying the Airbnb pitch deck doesn’t get you a VC meeting. Hard work does. And having mentors who know what they are talking about. It works because you learn the background, and we show you how to put it into practice.

how is the course structured?
One week per pitch deck section.
We’ve analyzed dozens of successful startups’ pitch decks, as well as recommendations from top VCs worldwide. We then blended them with our own experiences as founders, investors and advisors. This track is what came out of it.
At the end of this track, you will have a complete pitch deck of approximately 10 pages. (Problem & Solution take two pages, and Market is usually divided in TAM-SAM-SOM and Competition.)
How do we do it?
a unique blend of self-learning & e-mentoring.
We are at the forefront of learning technology. All our formats benefit from mentoring. Whether live or recorded, one-to-one, one-to-many or many-to-many, you will find a methodology that suits your needs.

How Long Does It Take?
Online courses take approximately two to three hours per week of self-study (for six weeks) + six weekly webinars (30 minutes each) + e-mentoring (30 minutes to 2 hours), depending on the plan you choose. That’s at least 20 hours in total, not counting the time you invest in perfecting your pitch deck, reading and replying to our written feedback, etc.
Email- and SMS-based plans take considerably less time, as there is fewer material covered.
No panic, the beauty of e-learning resides in the flexibility provided. You can work at any suitable time, and even on the go, as our platform is mobile-friendly. e-Mentoring sessions are planned in advance so you can work around your schedule accordingly.
Learn online on our platform. Courses are made of videos, posts, quizzes, polls, and exercises. At the end of every week, you post your pitch deck page online.
We provide written feedback on the slide you posted. It is published on your private account (or group, if you are doing the course with your co-founders.)
We gather online as a class every week on Zoom. We review both the week’s main takeaways and comment on each other’s slides.
Live 1:1 mentoring
We book four live, one-on-one mentoring sessions with you on Zoom. They last 30 minutes each and help you refine your pitch deck, but also your fundraising strategy.
how about confidentiality?
We understand the concern. Yet, most successful founders will tell you that you need to talk about your idea if you want feedback on it. Execution is what matters in this world, not the idea. That’s why VCs don’t sign Non-Disclosure Agreements.
Having other founders comment on your slides is a powerful booster to your learning curve. It’s a unique feature that only e-mentoring can provide at this scale. However, if you prefer to keep the slides confidential between us, we will do so.
In any case, we never share Financials & Transaction pitch deck pages with anyone. And don’t include potential competitors in the same webinars.
who is this course for?
anyone thinking about vc, really.
Don’t start too early, but don’t start too late, either. Although startup founders who are already raising money will benefit from this course, the best moment to start is a few months ahead of the roadshow. We will shatter many of your preconceived ideas about financial investors (business angels and venture capitalists), and most probably the way you think about your own company. So better plan enough time ahead to adjust course.

You may have noticed...
The video is in French. (Subtitles are on their way!) That’s because our Founder is based in France, at least for now. It gives us at least three unfair advantages.
Before you ask: all our videos are in English, and all of them have English subtitles, too. Besides, we show you videos from top US VCs – in English.
apparently it works!
70% of our visitors are based outside of France.
Two-thirds of these live in countries where English is the native language. Hover over the hot spots for precise percentages.

It's not about the money. It really isn't. It would be pointless to try and arbitrage each offer. What you need to do is focus on your needs. Go to the next box.
Now that's the right question. It depends on both what kind of learner you are, and how much time you are ready to invest in this endeavor.

Group plans are available for groups of 10 or more learners. These tracks start at fixed dates, every six weeks or so. We may decide to cancel a Group if there are not enough learners for a particular date. In that case, you will be offered a refund or the possibility to start at another date.
Online Courses - Group plans start at fixed dates. You will be asked to choose a date before making payment. New Units are opened once a week, usually on Fridays. You need to complete a Unit to be able to do the next.
Online Courses - Individual plan starts when your payment is approved. You don't have to make the Units in any particular order. However, you will have to do the lessons of each Unit in order.
Email- and SMS-Learning plans start when your payment is approved. The weekly or daily messages, respectively, will be sent on the same day and time of that payment approval.
Live Webinars follow the structure of this track. Every week, we will talk about the week's Unit (The Team, The Problem & Solution, The Market, etc. - see here for more information). They last 30 minutes, sometimes more - depending on how many questions learners have. We first cover the Unit's main takeaways. We then take a look, together, at pitch deck pages made by other learners. It's an excellent way to learn and get feedback. Webinars will be saved in your shared space on the platform.
Every week, you will post a pitch deck page online. On the first week, you will post the Team page, then the Problem and Solution pages on the second week, and so on. Provided you post your page by the end of each week, we will give you feedback on these pages. It can take various forms: asking you to further clarify the message, or challenging you to find more information. Written feedback is a useful prelude to our e-mentoring sessions. Feedback is given on our platform, where you have a private space to write to us.
Access to material on our platform used for both Online Courses and Email-Based Courses is valid for three months. The Track lasts 6 weeks, the extra time gives you more opportunity to go back to the videos and perfect your pitch deck. Needless to say, your TytchMe Academy account remains valid, which allows you to get prime access to new content and communicate with other learners on the platform.
You are more than welcome to use the Chatbox on this page (see icon on the bottom right of the page). Alternatively, you can send us an email using the Contact Form. We usually reply within 48 hours - sometimes much faster.
But wait. How can you offer such low prices?
let us tell you our secret.
First off, we have learners in all corners of the Globe, including areas where average pay is much lower than in Western Europe & North America. So we can’t charge too high a price because we want everyone to have access to these courses, too. Secondly, this track is what we hope the first one of many you will take with us. It’s the most pressing issue you need to fix as a fundraising entrepreneur. Finally, and perhaps more importantly, we are not trying to get rich here. Our goal is to make enough to keep producing high-quality content while living comfortably.
