Well organized show about entrepreneurs pitching ideas to investors. Really like the work you're doing!!
It's a more well-rounded version of "shark tank"! I love learning about the startups and hearing the feedback from investors
I give everything Gimlet puts their name behind a try - but they aren't all worth sticking with. The Pitch is great!
I started listening when this podcast joined Gimlet (season 2) and then went back and listened to the old episodes and I have to say I really appreciate what Gimlet has done with what was already an intriguing podcast. The new format really keeps me engaged, and I love how the personalities of the investors as well as the entrepreneurs are a big part of it. Find myself actually interested in products I normally would have no interest in (sports and casinos!!)
This is just a recipe for an engaging show. Very awesome to hear the real experiences of these founders
Fascinating podcast that highlights new business endeavors.
I thoroughly enjoy this podcast and have tweaked my own investor pitches based on listening to these episodes. I like it so much, I've actually applied to present to The Pitch! Every founder should listen to these episodes and learn from them.
The Pitch is an excellent podcast. Besides being educational, it is a great example of how the forced drama of "Shark Tank" is unnecessary. However, the podcast stumbles by having the narrator endlessly chime in with voice overs to explain/summarize/dramatize the proceedings. Sometimes this is helpful something we cannot see (such as the design of a product). More often, it serves to summarize what just happened/why a statement is a big deal. Whenever the pitch dialogue drops out in these instances, the narrative flow screeches to a halt, and I'm left wondering what the investors are actually saying (rather than a summary of why the unheard content matters). Please trust the content and let your listeners in on the action more.
This is a great show that keeps you wanting more. Huge upgrade in content and production with Season 2. Can't wait for me. Thanks
The show is very informative, fast-paced, and very well produced. They don't waste a second on unnecessary back-and-forth, what you hear will be both entertaining and useful to you. No canned drama as is par for the course with similar TV shows, like "Shark Tank."
Solid depth, insights, in a very consumable package. I'm a regular listener!
Famed music blogger Bob Lefsetz describes Tech Entrepreneurs as the new Rock Stars. If you love to live in an "idea space," or you are creating your own Startup like I am, this podcast is a gift.
So fascinating listening to what people are trying to build and what invetors really think.
Great podcasts on how to best pitch new businesses to powerhouse investors. Good stories, innovative and diverse start-ups, great advice and perspectives. A Must-listen!!
Love hearing the founder and potential investors learn from each other. I make my teenagers listen to see how businesses solve problems and innovate.
I'm not super into business but I am really enjoying season 2. It's like I'm stepping into an entirely different world when I listen
I love the feeling of rooting for real entrepreneurs who are building real companies. Honestly, I end up identifying both with the person giving the pitch AND the potential investors deciding whether to commit real dollars. It's fun to imagine what I'd invest MY money in (if I had some).
Loving listening to pitch stories of startups who aren't as polished and coached as Shark Tank but feel more like real life. It's cool to hear some great ideas, done questionable and frankly hear the mistakes people are making in their pitches and the process. It makes it feel more human and interesting.
I am liking this show much more than I expected - I'm not much into business always but I've been hooked in each of the first four episodes. Really excited to keep following this one
