LinkedIn Pitch Deck Information:

Greylock Partners dug up LinkedIn’s Series B pitch deck from August 2004. The deck billed LinkedIn as “professional people search 2.0.” LinkedIn had yet to generate a dime of revenue — however, the deck highlighted revenue as a high priority and identified clear streams to achieve it. The company 
raised $103M before it went public in 2011, and it was acquired by Microsoft for $26.2B in 2016.
