The Pitch

Build relationships with ambitious entrepreneurs

The Pitch is a national business growth programme for ambitious entrepreneurs. We build founders’ confidence, develop their pitch and create connections to help their business grow.

Our partners are an integral part of that work – The Pitch is an opportunity for your brand to build meaningful relationships with these founders at scale.

Tailored packages to deliver on your marketing goals

The Pitch gives you the opportunity to reach your target audience across multiple platforms and connect your brand with the advice founders are 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.

We know that our partners are looking to build meaningful relationships with startups, so 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 Sage, Currys Business, Vodafone Business, Seedrs and Fiverr. 

Sage has worked with us for three years. They were looking to build relationships with early-stage UK startups in need of accounting and HR support.

“The Pitch creates consistently slick content, which makes the process so straightforward for us. It’s great that they have access to a lot of micro-influencers that are really relevant in this space too.” Nicola White, Sage Marketing Manager.
