About CapitalPitch

Raising capital doesn’t have to be so hard

Fundraising has traditionally been opaque, frustrating and largely haphazard. Founders and investors waste so much time and energy finding each other and conducting due diligence. There is a smarter way.

“Streamlined, Transparent & Structured Startup Investing”

Today, like many revolutions before us, we’re using technology and experts to create a solution to this dysfunctional process. We’re helping startups raise capital the right way and investors filter and conduct due diligence thoroughly, yet quickly.

Welcome to CapitalPitch.

A tech-powered venture capital firm built on a savvy investment thesis and an all-in-one capital raising platform.
