The Pitch

Interested in being a supporter?

The Pitch provides startup founders with a friendly, accessible environment to help them build confidence, hone their pitch and get investment ready. And it works – our finalists from the past few cohorts have raised tens of millions since taking part.

We take startups through a programme of activity, from interactive webinars to exclusive in-person networking with investors.

Central to this programme is our amazing team of partners who help us provide money-can’t-buy insights, advice, and feedback.

We’re looking for partners to join us in supporting the next generation of exciting companies in the UK. Are you ready to play a crucial part in their journey?

What partners get out of supporting The Pitch

1. Increased brand awareness

Supporting The Pitch enables you to reach 26k startups in the community – introduce your brand to an audience of entrepreneurs who are ready to scale.

2. Brand association and education

Position your brand as a trusted partner through co-branded content, which addresses the challenges that founders face.

3. Getting in at the right stage

Use in-person and online events as an opportunity to build relationships with the best startups in the cohort.

Tailored packages to deliver on your goals

The Pitch gives you the opportunity to reach your target audience across multiple platforms and put your brand to the advice they’re searching for. 

We listen to the challenges of each partner and create a tailored partnership which addresses your objectives. This includes email marketing campaigns and bespoke co-branded content such as video, articles, guides, webinars and social activity.

Because we know that our partners are looking to build meaningful relationships with startups, we can also facilitate one-to-one meetings with the most relevant startups to your business.

Why do our partners love The Pitch?

The Pitch has been supported by incredible entrepreneurs and businesses that are dedicated to helping startups succeed. Past partners include Microsoft, Sage, e.on, Xero, Crowdcube, and ICAEW.

Crowdcube has worked with us for five years. They wanted to identify companies looking to raise investment and nurture relationships with founders before they start fundraising.

“The Pitch has been a great partner for us to find and fund quality UK startups. A key challenge is filtering away the noise to find the very best businesses – The Pitch has really helped us to do that effectively,”  Jonathan Keeling, Director of Partnerships at Crowdcube.
