Our Timeline

We know it’s hard to trust your fundraising deck design process to someone else—even experienced professionals. It feels risky. It’s your reputation and your business on the line, after all.

You will be assigned a dedicated pitch consultant who will be assisting you through our process. We don’t just want to provide you with a “pitch deck design” service during our engagement; we want to be an extension of your team that you can count on for advice and insight to achieve your fundraising goals.
