Pitchdeck Asia Show & Awards FAQ

Q: Can I have the questions beforehand?
A: We don’t send the questions beforehand. We want to make the show conversational rather than a rigid Q&A. It’s important to note we are not journalists, we don’t want to catch you out with tricky questions. Our job is to make you sound good. If you watch previous shows of Pitchdeck Asia, you’ll see common questions asked which will give you a feel for what’s important to our audience.

Q: How long is each show?
A: 35-40 minutes

Q: Does my company need a Pitch deck to appear on the show?
A: Yes please. In PDF, presentation or similar format

Q: Can I use the audio, video and photos from the show?
A: Yes, absolutely – these are great PR & marketing tools. We won’t send you the raw files directly after the show but you’ll be able to access them in the most shareable formats – ie. download the MP3 files from iTunes and embed the video from Youtube.

Q: How much is the assessment fee and what does it pay for?
A: US $150 to cover the assessment and due diligence of each application. Unsuccessful applicants receive full refunds of the fee.

Q: Why do you charge an assessment fee?
A: For 3 reasons. 1) Like you we’re a startup too. We have to make money. This is what we do. AV equipment isn’t cheap! 2) Paying a fee will weed out the timewasters, allowing us to assess only the startups who are serious. This helps our audience of founders and angel investors know that the shows they watch will be worth their time 3) The fee helps reduce no-shows. We maintain a packed schedule. A canceled show is a time slot another startup could have taken.

Q: On what basis would my application be unsuccessful?
A: If your startup doesn’t fit the show format e.g. you are not the company founder, there is no working product, contentious or sensitive content (e.g. adult, political, religious, military, controlled substances etc), or we believe in any way that your interview will lead potential defamation of others, or negative impact on our brand or business.

Q: What kind of startups excite the audience?
A: Founders who have great stories, can answer the question ‘why?’, are fixing a real-world problem and/or can explain their solution clearly to my Grandma.

Q: Who can appear on the show?
A: Founders of companies who are currently raising funds

Q: Can 2 of us appear on the show?
A: We can have up to 2 guests, as long as they are both founders/owners of the company.

Q: Where is the studio?
A: In Bukit Timah, Singapore

Q: What is your studio like?
A: We have a purpose built professional recording studio in Singapore managed by the Podcast Agency.

Q: Can I edit the show before it goes live?
A: No. To retain editorial authenticity, we don’t edit our shows (unless there is a serious mistake). All those “ums” and “ahs” make you sound more human, this is not about manufacturing the kind of sterile pitch you see on conference panel sessions.

Q: Who is the audience?
A: Mainly startup founders and early stage investors (angels, early stage VCs).

Q: Who Decides the Pitchdeck Asia Awards?
A: We put the awards out to public voting of registered Linkedin users. This process generates a lot of traffic and leverages the best platform to raise awareness in front of your target audience (investors, partners, future employees).
