Help with your pitch
Without a flawless pitch, your chances of raising capital are slim. Our mentors will work with you to craft your pitch so it’s airtight before meeting with investors. We’ve assembled an all-star cast of founders to deliver battle-tested feedback and advice.
Pitch meetings with investors
There are endless earth-shattering startups that get stuck because they can’t get in the room with investors. We’ll arrange meetings with top-tier investors to hear your new-and-improved pitch.
Tools & resources for success
Once you raise, the real pressure starts. We’ll lighten the load by giving you ad placements, recruiting exposure, a podcast appearance, cash, and future investment to keep you moving.
