About The Pitch

Real Entrepreneurs. 
Real Investors. Real Money.

Launched in 2015, The Pitch transports listeners behind the closed doors of business deals for an eye-opening glimpse into what it takes to build a startup.

Each episode follows a hopeful entrepreneur through their business pitch before a panel of prospective investors.  We know that securing funding is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to growing a business: The Pitch is known for digging deep into founders’ stories, and following up with featured start-ups even after they’ve secured funding. 

“These Silicon Valley investors set out to create the antithesis of 'Shark Tank'” - Business Insider

With accolades in outlets including CNN, Forbes, Inc., Insider, and more, the show reaches an audience of hundreds of thousands of listeners including entrepreneurs and business leaders. The Pitch is hosted by Josh Muccio, who brought the independent podcast to Gimlet in 2017. Where they produced over 100 episodes of the show from 2017 to 2020. Then in 2022, after the sale of Gimlet Media to Spotify, Josh purchased The Pitch back from Gimlet, took the podcast independent again, and made it available on all platforms.
