Biotech Pitch Deck

Business Plan Articles

Even with Biotech companies being among the most funded industries in the VC/PE space, companies still need pitch decks to demonstrate their approach to the market and product demand. Biotech companies require a significant amount of capital and those involved in drug research may not even have a commercialize product. However, investors in this industry are aware of the risks so instead it is better to focus on the potential of the finished, commercialized technology if it passes the FDA pipeline, if needed.

Biotech Pitch Deck

A pitch deck for a biotech company is more significant than just to look pretty. Many investors will use the deck to screen your company to determine if it is worth their time to schedule a call and review your business in greater detail. Most companies never even receive a call with an investor, so its important to understand what they are looking for so that you may structure the pitch deck accordingly. In general, a good biotech business plan has three main aspects including the value proposition, business model, and financials. Together, this helps investors to understand the problem you are solving, how you will deliver value, and generate a profit from that value.

Value Proposition

The value proposition section of a biotech pitch deck generally provides information related to what the primary problem in the market is. For many biotech companies, this is the pharmaceutical that it is developing. However, several biotech companies may be associated with hardware or a service in the biotech industry, in which it helps to communicate the significance of the problem faced. In the context of a drug, it helps to point out other drugs that are similar and why they are ineffective and how many people it impacts. Obviously treatments that only impact a small percentage of the population and closely replicate something already on the market is not as appealing as a major treatment discovery for a widespread disease.

For instance, a drug that treats Alzheimer’s patients may discuss the total US population that suffers from the disease and how that number is unlikely to decline anytime soon. If the company does not produce drugs, then the business model is as it relates to how the product or service will be produced or delivered.

Financial Projections

If the company produces drugs IMF data of comparable pharmaceuticals are often used as a reference to predict the revenue generation.

Market Size and Competition

Make a realistic appraisal of the possible market size for your product or firm in biotech investor pitch deck. Make a distinction between the potential customer base, which is your company's complete revenue potential, and the available market, which is the fraction of the potential customer base in which you can actually compete. Illustrate the two so that potential investors can identify where your company's customer sweet spot is. Determine who your competitors are, both existing and potential players in your field. Many investors are seeking businesses that will one day compete with the behemoths, so don't be hesitant to name them.

Team Slide

Avoid highlighting employees who aren't directly related to the job you're doing; a Nobel Laureate in Literature isn't always useful to a biotech firm. Investors want to learn about your team and partners, including any advisers, co-investors, and board members, in a succinct yet engaging way. What makes your team's background and experience stand out? This is the critical tool to highlight prior accomplishments and your network.
