Pitch Crew

A fun and candid founder community for fundraising

Posted Embed
Fundraising can be hard, emotionally draining, and isolating even for a 2nd or 3rd-time founder. Pitch Crew is a community of founders in similar stages, giving each other group pitch feedback and ongoing support, as they raise & grow their companies.

    Pros: 

    I practiced my pitch with Pitch Crew last summer and it was super helpful going into YC demo day.

    Cons: 

    No one kind of pitch practice is going to make your pitch perfect. But Pitch Crew will point you in the right direction :)

    Very helpful feedback from a fun, kind group of folks.

    Leigh Honeywell has used this product for one year.

This is an awesome initiative. Before we started working on FYI, @marie_prokopets and I were doing a *ton* of pitch prep and giving pitch deck feedback. We had personally reviewed 300+ pitch decks and did pitch prep with 100+ founders because we saw the pain and wanted to help. This is a much needed solution to a problem every founder who wants to raise money has had at some point in their journey.

Hi Product Hunt! @sandimac, @russ_sm, and I started Pitch Crew a year ago in Sandi's living room, when a friend asked us to review his pitch for seed funding. He went on to join a great accelerator in SF and attributed part of his success to perfecting his pitch with the group that day. We love hanging out together and strategizing with makers, so we kept having people over in groups (along with Sandi's dog, Rupert - that's him in the thumbnail 🐶). Since then, it's grown in ways we never expected: we've met dozens of inspiring founders, they've kept in touch, and we've seen them bring their visions of the world closer to reality. And everyone learns from each others' styles. In that spirit, I thought it would be fun to ask you all about the things you think you didn't know in your career that became a strength. Let's say, talking to investors, something at work that used to be hard, or selling the first customer on a side-project. What's a favorite thing you've learned along the way?

Fantastic people who know their shit. I'll probably build something just to have something to pitch as an excuse to hang out.
