The Pitch

A BusinessTechnology and Society podcast featuring Josh Muccio
 5 people rated this podcast
Named 'the best business podcast on startup life' by Fortune. Listen as entrepreneurs pitch to real investors—for real money. In each episode, we take you behind closed doors to the critical moment when aspiring entrepreneurs put it all on the line. While it offers a glimpse into the high-stakes world of venture capital, it’s really a show about human relationships: how people sell their ideas, what makes investors tick, and how these initial conversations can bloom into business deals—or die on the vine. Hosted by Josh Muccio from Gimlet.

AdvisablyRed reviewed this podcast on Sep 6th, 2017
"Post-Gimlet acquisition, the podcast is solid. It is more realistic than Shark Tank - no wading through annoyingly produced emotional stories or artificially callous investors. With less resources, the deals tend to be a bit less exciting than ST, but it is overall more educational and thus a better time spend. "
