Founder & CEO Reid Hoffman shared LinkedIn's original pitch deck that helped close $10M in Series B funding from Greylock in 2004. The deck took a fairly unique and highly-detailed approach to pitching LinkedIn's network-based "Web 2.0" growth model.

Most impressively, LinkedIn was actually able to accomplish Hoffman's prescient vision: growing to 433 million users by the time the company was acquired by Microsoft in 2016 for an estimated $26.2 billion!
