Your pitch deck is the first introduction to your company. Without a well-versed brand story and cohesive design your deck will get lost in the sea of pitches. Make yourself stand out from the beginning.” - Chris Sullivan, Co-Founder & Brand Storyteller of Kworq
The Founder Institute and Kworq will collaborate to support the creative and marketing needs of the Founder Institute’s 2,200+ graduates from over 60 countries. In addition to creating cohesive branding for startups around the globe, a goal of this initiative will be to reiterate the importance of effective branding on the success of startups by providing founders in the program with pitch deck templates.
In order to succeed after graduation, Founder Institute Graduates need to have a clear and effective pitch deck. Our partnership with Kworq will provide our Graduates with well-designed templates that will help them get traction and funding for their company.” - Adeo Ressi, Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute
For aspiring and idea-stage entrepreneurs up to the challenge, the Founder Institute’s comprehensive step-by-step program provides the structure, mentor support, and global network of entrepreneurs needed to start an enduring company. In addition, the Founder Institute is the only program of its kind that focuses on people versus ideas, accepts founders with day jobs, and shares equity with all participants. Founder Institute Graduate companies include fast-rising startups across 6 continents like Udemy, Realty Mogul, goplaceit, Appota, and many more.
Kworq is a Creative Agency located in SoHo, NYC. Our co-founders - Guy Peires and Chris Sullivan - come from a production background where the foundation of all content is a solid narrative. We take that same approach with our clients - big and small. It’s not good enough to have a great idea for a business. Now - more than ever - early stage startups need to set themselves apart by finding a strong brand narrative. That starts with the pitch deck.

Kworq creates digital brand stories and craft killer experiences. At Kworq, we live by story-driven design. From the start of any project, we’re thinking about who our story needs to reach, where it will be shown, and who will empathize with our woven narrative. We've successfully applied this thinking across multiple disciplines with our clients. A brand story designed to reach audiences is no longer a 30 second spot - it’s a website, a video campaign, online interactions, and personalized experiences. Our work builds engagement, brand awareness, and increases returns.
