DISCLAIMER TEMPLATE

WHY A DISCLAIMER IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR DECK

A pitch deck is a formal presentation that outlines the key features and value proposition of a proposed new startup. It typically includes information about the problem to be solved; the target audience for this solution; competitors; market potential and how you will generate revenue from your business plan…

The startup pitch deck is a crucial part of securing funding for your new venture and whilst it is obviously important for the deck to include a persuasive pitch for investment, it’s also important that you include a disclaimer to protect yourself from any legal action further down the line.

There are three key reasons why a disclaimer is such an important part of your startup pitch deck:

  • Firstly, it ensures that you are not offering securities to the wide public and only to HNWI and sophisticated investors, as per FCA regulations (in the Uk, but across Europe it’s pretty similar).
  • Secondly, it helps make sure that your customers are aware of any potential risks they may be taking in investing in your company.
  • Thirdly, a disclaimer can protect against lawsuits from disgruntled investors if the product or service does not live up to expectations.
