Presentation Templates We Like

Have to create a presentation but don’t know where to start? Or need some design help to boost your deck? Thankfully, not every presentation has to start with a blank white slide — there are dozens of free, downloadable presentation templates that can help you with everything from crafting a business pitch to laying out your design. Whether you use a template in its entirety or merely for inspiration, it can certainly serve as a jumping-off point. Here are a few worth checking out:

    Using templates for your website make you look amateur. Why would you use templates for pitch decks, which are typically an investor’s first impression of you?
