About Us: Pitch Global & predecessor cos have run investor events and summits in silicon valley, LA, London and ONLINE for almost a decade where tens of thousands of global entrepreneurs have connected with investors. We are unique since we not only run our own events, we also run/promote events for some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley. The following video, with footage from 2 events we ran, features some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley. Do watch Steve Jurvetson’s words of wisdom about his experiences of investing in entrepreneurs like Elon Musk. https://youtu.be/Kmd2cJvirEQ

Examples of funding through Pitch Global events and how it has gone up in the online/covid era: The shut down mid March took us all by surprise but Pitch Global managed to convert our part online event co hosted by UC Berkeley Global into fully online on 20th March. At this event, one of our regular Founders, Erik Ekland of Telemetrak got some funding and he has consistently raised more funds across Q2 of 2020. It was great to get a shout from another of our regulars:

“Thanks for introducing me to a leading Bank in Silicon Valley. That led to us getting a line of credit” --- Russ Jones of Cargo Chief (you can see him Pitching at the above video)

We paired the Founders of Virtanza and Champions Round with the CEO of Expert Dojo LA which funded both of them in the COVID era. They also funded Meet Caregivers whose founder we met at the largest conference in silicon valley and invited her to Pitch with us after which she raised considerable amount from Pipeline Angels whose representative she met at our event. Later she got funding from Nex3/Sway Ventures which has invested in more than 10 startups they have met in our events including Ootify, the Sponsor of this video from one of our LA events where we have the local Heads of TIE, Plug&Play, Keiretsu Forum and others present. https://youtu.be/wBpvGUCunn4

 

Innovation& Entrepreneurial Education: Pitch Global has become a satellite of SBA affiliated agency as we are sponsored by US govt to Mentor startups with job creating potential. As a result of the Mentoring, which is FREE for selected startups as US Govt is paying us, cos like Ursaleo, Realkey, Plethy, Tutorfly etc have all gone on to raise solid capital. This video begins with Founder of Garden Tech co from London endorsing the value they got by becoming a sponsor and ends with leader of a group of CEO's from Poland endorsing our Innovation&entrepreneurial education classes. https://youtu.be/OqYIMdC2mi0

 

Why has funding success at PG online events gone up: 

---The  sophistication of the technical infrastructure/prowess provided by our world class partners like UC Berkeley Global and Angel to Exit.

----World class event hosts and their unique experience in matching entrepreneurs to those investors who is most likely to invest –in the examples of funding above, we had matched entrepreneurs with the exact investor who funded them. Cos hire us  to match them to the right investors and pitch privately to them outside of events so email us if you are interested.
