Please Don’t Say AI in Your Pitch Deck

It can show lack of knowledge.

Firstly, don’t use terminology in your deck if you do not know what it means inside and out (EVER). Many incorporate terms like AI, immersive realities, or blockchain into their deck or pitch without knowing the full extent of what they mean.

It can feel disrespectful to those in the field.

Secondly, don’t undercut the industry and those who are working incredibly hard on these technologies.

It can be a crutch for founders.

And lastly, some individuals feel like they need to throw in more technical jargon in their pitch to overcompensate for lack of confidence. (I think everyone has been guilty of this at some point, myself included.)
