Winners (chose by judges)

  3. Sustainable Food Lab by Chrislandry

People’s Choice Winners

  1. PaniPuri--An Introduction by Thakkar

  2. ShiftHappens by Jbrenman

  3. Meet Henry by Chereeemoore

The commonality you’ll see in these winners is big fonts, big graphics, and a “storytelling” orientation. These are three crucial qualities of a good presentation.

Now I am really confused. The rule is no more than 10 slides in 20 minutes with 30 point fonts, and the top three winning slide shows have 67 slides, 57 slides, and 54 slides??? Maybe I should just forget about VC presentations and find myself a rich uncle.

Thanks for sharing the links, Guy.

We recently held a similar contest (Announcing the Winners of the Articulate Guru Awards 2007) and saw the same kind of thing with our winners - all were big and bold, told a story, and were much more interesting than a bullet point-laden PowerPoint.

Here's a direct link to the Gold Medal winner, Prometheus Training Corp., which was recently featured on Lifehacker, too:

Great presentations. I'm really impressed and inspired.

The "Shift Happen" is certainly impressive! I love it~ Is there any CC license for those slide? I would like to translate them to another language, do you think it's ok?

Great information! Showing potential entrepreneurs the right way to do a presentation will save a lot of VCs precious time.

Hi, I am impressed by the bright ideas you advertise. I have sent a link to your page to all of my team.

Great source of inspiration as I am preparing to jump on my own to follow my own dreams and quitting my job. I will have a look for your book.

Best,

Guy, It looks like you and Garage are going to make a mint once Google buys Simply Hired. Congrats! I know all your readers would love the nitty-gritty details of the negotiation and how the deal went down(If it does...).

http://www.thealarmclock.com/mt/archives/2007/05/google_negotiat.html

Thanks for your blog. I found it a few months ago, via Seth G's blog, and went back to the beginning to read every post( I skimmed a few).

Happy negotiations!

Blake

Well, it seems that I've disclosed the results way before yesterday : see [http://fibergeneration.typepad.com/welcome/2007/04/slideshare_the_.html]
I swear : I will do it again ;-)

The presentations are cool from a visual standpoint. The content is so-so. The first one has interesting facts and even if I assume they are all correct the conclusions drawn are shaky (at best). 'Technical information is increasing at such a rate that education is almost obsolete by the time you graduate.' It's the perfect sound-good, shallow thought hype that goes in regular Powerpoints.

Great presentations!

I have a long road to walk before I reach the quality the awarded presentations are showing but I am following your advises and I believe I will succeed.

Thank you, Guy!

Great information! Showing potential entrepreneurs the right way to do a presentation will save a lot of VCs precious time.

What a fantastic set of presentations to really demonstrate effective use of slides.

Didn't you have a section in the Art of The Start that covered presentations and mentioned these points with respect to startups too?

Guy, do you think that presentations of eg. startups looking for funding shown to potential investors should be as photo-rich as the winner ones? What's your opinion/advice?

Very nice, I am also planning for slides and this is good information, as well as resource.

Thanks for the links!

This is good fodder for any new media - or old media - journalism organizations. They should pay attention and quit whining about not fulfilling unreasonable investor expectations.

Thanks for this info.

Your link for Sustainable Food Lab is going to Meet Henry. The correct link is:
