basic pitch

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

we help you simplify your pitch & get you funded

basic pitch is a fundraising studio helping early-stage 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.
