The Competitive Advantage Slide (Also can be referred to as “Moat”) is a place to sum up the reasons why competitors can’t beat you right now or in the future. It can contain content such as; patents, market capture, etc. Typically it is located after the Traction Slide or the Business Model Slide.
After you introduce your world changing solution, the question of “why can’t someone just copy them” will pop into investor’s heads.
Something that you should be thinking about when building your deck is what questions will be triggered by the content that you are presenting. A big part of your job is to answer those questions before they even leave the investor’s mouth.
The purpose of the Competitive Advantage Slide is to provide a summary of what your competitive advantage / moat is which competitors will have a hard time getting around.

The Pitch Deck Handbook is for anyone who is looking to build a pitch deck for raising money for their startup or idea. It will cover each “typical” slide found in a pitch deck in detail to give you an in depth look at how to build a great deck, slide by slide. Keep in mind, every startup is different so you might not include some of the slides talked about or you might include ones that aren’t discussed at all in this series.
The Solution Slide is where you show what your solution is and how it addresses the problems listed in your Problem Slide. It typically includes the name of the solution, visual depictions of the solution, a description, and lists how the solution addresses the problem(s) that were listed. This slide is placed after the Problem Slide or after the Existing Solutions Slide.
