basic pitch

because basic pitches raise rounds
chances are investors don't get what you're saying in your deck.

simplify your pitch

basic pitch is a fundraising studio helping awesome founders raise VC

so many good ideas die because founders can't tell good stories to investors or their clients. basic pitch was founded with that in mind - to help founders simplify complex narratives and stand out.

about valentina
basic pitch

been there, raised that (scroll down for a photo of me killing it on the semifinals of a pitching competition). raising vc for my tech startup took 100% of my time and i had to let some fires burn. it was arguably the hardest thing i had to do as a founder and it was especially hard because i knew nothing about vc.

but i fell in love with it and started helping other founders - sharing everything i wish i knew before hopping on the first meeting with investors.

at the heart of basic pitch is yours truly, flanked by an ex-vc, and a crew of founders—some still in the trenches, others veterans of the startup wars.
