About Us

Every time Pitch Creator helps an entrepreneur break through and raise capital, that creates jobs and a cascading benefit in the entrepreneurial community.”

– Jason Tagler
Volunteer Director and Founder

Mission

Pitch Creator’s mission is to help create jobs in geographic areas that need them the most by teaching entrepreneurs how to communicate with investors and raise growth capital for their businesses.

We do that through our “education platform,” which is a combination of our website, free resources, online courses, presentations, workshops, and related services.

We are focused on creating jobs in geographic areas that need them the most, so we prioritize helping entrepreneurs who:

  • Are raising capital for the first time
  • Do not have the networks and advantages of CEOs who are in Silicon Valley or similar areas
  • Are not backed by professional investors

Social Impact Organization

Pitch Creator is a social impact organization and our financial goal is to be cashflow break even (zero profit) each year. We self-fund operations by selling online courses and some pitch-coaching services.  After we cover our fixed costs, we spend any residual cash flow on improving our education platform and making awards to student entrepreneurs.

We don’t receive grants or tax-free donations.

All of the Advisors and Directors volunteer their time. Most Coaches do as well.

Multiplier Effect

When a CEO is able to break through and access growth capital, it usually results in high-quality job creation and there is a multiplier effect because that CEO:

• Is better able to raise growth capital in the future;

• Can be an example and/or mentor for others, which creates a cascading benefit in the entrepreneurial community; and

• Has a better chance of starting more successful companies.

Who We Serve

We primarily serve the following three groups of people:

1. CEOs and founders who need to raise capital.

2. Coaches, mentors, and instructors who work with those entrepreneurs.

3. College/university instructors who are preparing student entrepreneurs for an investor pitch event (like Shark Tank).

How Are We Different?

Fundamental Principles:  First, we teach the fundamental principles of raising capital that can be applied to any stage, or type, of company (not just early-stage tech startups).  After that foundation of knowledge is solid, we teach advanced skills on top of it. 

 

Learning Journey: Our courses take entrepreneurs on a learning journey that is designed for efficiency.  Studying the right information in the right order, and getting feedback at the right points time, are all important. 

 

Hybrid Learning: Most of our courses are designed so the entrepreneur stops at certain points and gets feedback from a coach, mentor, or colleague. These feedback loops allow the entrepreneur to try-fail-learn with their coach, and before they get in front of investors.

 

Improvement Scores Support Fundraising: A coach can score an entrepreneur on core learning objectives as they progress through our courses. This is not a grade, but a relative improvement score that allows the coach to focus on the areas where the entrepreneur needs the most help. Then, those scores can be averaged across a group of entrepreneurs and used to show the success of the education program, support grant applications or budgets, or for other fundraising purposes.
