I Know Everybody Told You to Send Your Fund-Raising Decks as a Link.
What should be in your deck?
Problem you’re solving (Pain)
Your unique approach (USP)
Why it’s extremely valuable to your customers (ROI)
Basic technology explanations / differentiated IP
Market Size (TAM)
Unit Economics
Financial Projections, preferably 18 months income statement by month and a 3–5 year projection by quarter (showing the “out years” is a helpful exercise even though nobody expects good fidelity)
Customer metrics or if enterprise sales some key customers and pipeline
Amount you’re raising
Use of proceeds
And all of this should come across as a narrative story rather than a stilted business plan.

What should not be in your deck?
Detailed roadmap of features you plan to build
Detailed customer information
Salary information
Any other information you wouldn’t want seen or know by your competitors or a larger audience

How to Tell If You're a Great Manager
As I read this list of 12 questions, I started answering them for each of the different roles I’ve had. When I worked for great managers and answered the questions, I found I answered yes to almost all of them. The converse is also true.

This list incorporates questions about communication clarity, mission, shared values, respect, community and teamwork.

Do I know what is expected of me at work?
Do I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work right?
At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?
In the last seven days, have I received recognition or praise for doing good work?
Does my supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about me as a person?
Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
At work, do my opinions seem to count?
Does the mission/purpose of my company make me feel my job is important?
Are my co-workers committed to doing high-quality work?
Do I have a best friend at work?
In the last six months, has someone at work talked to me about my progress?
This last year, have I had opportunities at work to learn and grow?
Running through this list as a manager with each report might be a great way to structure a one-on-one, especially those deeper conversations about career progression, employee satisfaction and a person’s place within an organization.

Employee Equity: How Much? – AVC
When you have the brackets set up, you put a multiplier next to them. There are no hard and fast rules on multipliers. You can also have many more brackets than four. I am sticking with four brackets to make this post simple. Here are our default brackets:

Senior Team: 0.5x

Director Level: 0.25x

Key Functions: 0.1x

All Others: 0.05x

Then you multiply the employee's base salary by the multiplier to get to a dollar value of equity. Let's say your VP Product is making $175k per year. Then the dollar value of equity you offer them is 0.5 x $175k, which is equal to $87.5k. Let's say a director level product person is making $125k. Then the dollar value of equity you offer them is 0.25 x $125k which is equal to $31.25k.

Then you divide the dollar value of equity by the "best value" of your business and multiply the result by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding to get the grant amount. We said that the business was worth $25mm and there are 10mm shares outstanding. So the VP Product gets an equity grant of ((87.5k/25mm) * 10mm) which is 35k shares. And the the director level product person gets an equity grant of ((31.25k/25mm) *10mm) which is 12.5k shares.

Another, possibly simpler, way to do this is to use the current share price. You get that by dividing the best value of your company ($25mm) by the fully diluted shares outstanding (10mm). In this case, it would be $2.50 per share. Then you simply divide the dollar value of equity by the current share price. You'll get the same numbers and it is easier to explain and understand.

We analyzed 7 of the fastest-growing personal finance apps of all time to figure out the secrets to their success
An explosion of new consumer finance brands is transforming how people save, spend, and manage their money.

Ninety-two million millennials will soon be in what Goldman Sachs calls their “prime spending years.” In aggregate, they command $1.3 trillion in annual spending. They have a deep antipathy to traditional financial institutions.

A host of startups have emerged to capitalize on this trend. These companies are making it easier to make a budget, invest, and buy stocks, as well as to get loans and credit cards.

To build a successful personal finance management tool, it’s important to understand the dynamics of user acquisition and growth.
