WHO WE
ARE

Welcome to PITCH GLOBAL, networks of CVC’s, VC’s and angels from reputed funds, in Silicon Valley, LA and globally (scroll below to see a partial list of funds which attends our events and view footage of US Govt funded Innovation Demo Days we run regularly). We have been mentoring Founders and running premier investor events for almost a decade and as a satellite of US Govt agency we are involved in doubling their total assistance in Northern California from $ 500 m in 2020 to $ 1 b.  All the companies featured have gotten funding from connections made through us – not just equity but also non-dilutive like LOC’s and Government Grants! 

Recent Funding Success

Through our paid mentorship (funded by NorCal SBDC) three companies, that our Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs) have mentored, raised collectively more than $20 million in 8 months. 

Over the past 10 years, Founders who have presented at Pitch Global run/promoted events have raised through our network of reputable CVCs, VCs, and Angel Funds attending our events.

For instance, in 2021, one of our active judges, a Korean Corporate Venture Capitalist (CVC), top 3 in the world, invested over $ 1.5 billion in a US based clean energy company that pitched at one of our Silicon Valley Virtual Pitch Events.

PITCH GLOBAL AND CORPORATE VENTURES

Such Projects have gotten Pitch Global on the radar of VC arms of large companies, and they are increasingly reaching out to Pitch Global for gaining access to startups in their extended network of networks. 

Pitch Global events often begin with an investor Panel drawn from Corporate Venture Capital (CVC’s) arms of large companies. For instance, a recent Lifesciences investor event had a Panel with senior investors from United Health, Boehringer Ingelheim, Novartis, Qualcomm, etc.

One of the Largest investor networks meets unique culture & experience of matching entrepreneurs with investors: 

Pitch Global is considered to be a leading investor Network of Networks not only in Silicon Valley but also in other influential markets like LA. They have given examples of US Angels and Expert Dojo above, which are just 2 of hundreds of investor groups whose members attend our events.

The Funding success at Pitch Global virtual events is rooted in the unique format of Pitch Global live events in SF, LA, and London where, instead of picking winners, each participant is matched with one or more investors who are most likely to invest.

So, over the years, Pitch Global has perfected its unique matchmaking process which has led to thousands of global entrepreneurs connect with the right investors.
