One of the best business/entrepreneur-oriented shows out there. So entertaining and educational :)
Really enjoy the structure of this. It’s exceeded expectations. Very helpful being a fly on the wall and hearing the pitches and entrepreneurs that get cash, and comparing them to the ones who don’t.
If the founder Kevin can afford his two kids go to private high school this year, then why he can’t afford a developer to turn on the pay wall following apples requirements.
Great show, concise episodes with varied companies and founders. But it seems like the investors never actually go for it! It’s frustrating
Absolutely love The Pitch. If you enjoy Shark Tank, you will definitely like this show. I love the check ins, both at the end of the episode and in later episodes. I never miss an episode.
If your remotely interested in learning more about or starting a business, this is the podcast for you! This team casts a wide net around the start-up experience, from before the pitch room (concept stage) to after revenue generation, they truly uncover all of the various nuances companies face along their journey.
The Pitch is one of my favorite podcasts. I love the authentic view of the entrepreneur, VCs, and the pitch. It’s everything you hope for watching tv shows like Shark Tank, but without the taint of network tv.
This show was made for you. I work in education, but have always been interested in the the path of entrepreneurship. I really enjoy listening to this podcast. I do wish it offered more episodes with female guests.
This is one of the few podcasts I enjoy listening to. It’s fun to hear new ideas and how investors react. The host is great and it’s an all around great podcast. After hearing an ad on Spotify, I had to listen and it was a great decision!
This podcast is perfect to help entrepreneurs avoid some of the pitfalls when dealing with VC. I love that in the discussions the VC gives alternative ways to raise funds and suggestion(on product improvement or marketing, pricing etc.) if the company is too earlier.
The behind the scenes recap separates this from the rest as we get to hear what happens after the initial commitments and the diligence process. Not every deal goes through from that first pitch or sometimes investors get even more excited and put in larger amounts. I like the approach of the Pitch!
I’m not someone who hopes to have a startup someday. This podcast is full of great advice for people in that category. But it’s also a great listen for people like me. I love podcasts that transport me to another world that is completely different from my own. They’re the most stress relieving and entertaining for me. I just found the Pitch and am working my way through the archives. Thanks for a great show!
Great podcast! I love the follow up after the pitch to find out if the investors followed through. It’s a great format.
I’ve listened to every episode of this podcast. Sad to see it go. Even if you aren’t looking to get money for your business, it’s informative and exciting to listen to these business owners pitch their ideas and see just what they go through.
While downloading this week’s episode, I saw that this is the first episode for the final season. No! Don’t go! I really enjoy The Pitch! What can we do to get you to change your mind? #sigh. This makes me so sad.
I love this show! Great feedback and a fun listen. Wish there were some images or video to go along with it, so one can see the presentation. I love making my own predictions and whether I would’ve invested if I were a billionaire too😂
I cannot recall if I’ve provided a 5 star review previously. But here it is. I work and speak with startup founders weekly. The investors provide excellent analysis of these businesses. On top of that, they are kind and supportive towards the founders. It is a very positive and informative show. Love listening every week. Just wish there were twice as many episodes.
Ugh, I accidentally put this review on the wrong "The Pitch" podcast page. Sorry! Wanted to say I'm not an entrpreneur (too scared for that) and I'm not an investor (too broke for that) but I LOVE listening to this podcast about young businesses and what they do. It's very interesting to hear about the products and services people think about putting out into the world. It's equally interesting to hear the investor-experts give their opinions on the future of these businesses and whether they think they have a chance to "make it".
I love the show. As an individual with no business background but an entrepreneurial mindset and a drive to take my innovations to the next level, the show presents lots of food for thought for future entrepreneurs, like me. Over the last season, the show has done a commendable job of better explaining what certain acronyms or jargon term mean that might not immediately register to those like me. Now, while you still get a five star rating from me, I would like to offer a modicum of feedback. That is, I suggest avoiding prefacing phrases that could inadvertently marginalize a part of your listening base. I took issue when Josh said in episode 31 @ 00:25:00 that unless you’ve been living under a rock you probably already know what an ICO is. I’ll be quite frank, I have some very successful people in my family who are entrepreneurs and I’ve lived around business language quite a bit in my life, but I’ve never heard of an ICO and I felt like there are probably others like me who haven’t either that really don’t want to want to be put down for this. All this to say, going forward it would behoove you to avoid these sayings by exercising a little more sensitivity to the fact that you have listeners that are still learning. Try not to absentmindedly exclude them or marginalize them. Otherwise keep up the good work. Please bring back the values of the investments!!! Michael Hyatt needs to go. Hate him. No compassion. Frankly, I think business classes at all levels should require listening to this podcast. Thanks for all you are doing. Keep up the great work!!! Ari in Grand Rapids, MI.
Love this entire podcast! So much knowledge dropped in each episode and for someone who is a previous teacher, joining the startup world, this has been extremely helpful. Just finished “80% Off!”. Would it be possible to do more conversations like the one at the end of this one with Sarah? More in-depth info about valuations, etc. would be awesome!
I love the real-time feel of the show. The pitch lets you hear and learn from the pitch makers mistakes; while staying nicely out of the way of the story.
I’m starting to get really bugged about the offers that happen during the show that then disappear after the show. It has a disingenuous feel.
So interesting!! Fabulous VC panel that give huge insights into what drives their decisions and how they evaluate founders and their products. Love follow up episodes and when Josh offers his opinions too!!
