Rippling took an unusual approach when raising their $45 million Series A led by Kleiner Perkins in 2019: they used "no formal Pitch Deck" as the center of their fundraising materials.

This approach took advantage of the storytelling strengths of the written medium, while showcasing important data such as graphs, charts, and tables in an accompanying set of 46 supplementary slides. Rather than share fragmented Excel sheets for due diligence, Rippling packaged their data room into comprehensive, organized slides with metrics, projections and detailed footnotes.
