Some pitchers give their audience a handout of their pitch before they enter the stage. This handout is a summary of everything they discuss in their pitch.

This is the worst idea ever.

If you give a handout to your audience, they will study the handout while they listen to your pitch. Alongside, they will be looking at your pitch slides at the same time.

Studying a handout + looking at pitch slides + listening to a pitch = confusion

There are too many distractions for your audience. I will guarantee you, most of the people will forget 90% of what you just pitched.

Instead of wasting time on a handout, put your time in practicing your pitch. This will yield way better results.
