A pitch video platform for underrepresented founders to be discovered by the right investors in a human-first way.
Because you can’t put a person in a static pitch deck.
Hello First name / there!
Holy moly were there a lot of recent signups; welcome to all our new subscribers! I personally send this newsletter once a month to share what's on my mind, Scroobious updates, where to catch me speaking, and a feature on one of our founders. Make sure to scroll down to catch it all!
March is women's history month, and on March 8th we celebrated International Women's Day. Our feeds are currently flooded with content and initiative launches promoting women. I'm glad there is a month dedicated to recognizing our equality and I'm glad so many are seeing images of women in leadership positions, but it's always bittersweet, because I know at the end of the month this will rapidly dissipate.
You don't need a specific month to support women, but if it helps spur you to action, then by all means, act now! In particular, support a female founder. An investment check is likely the most helpful thing you can do, but if that's not an option, there are many other things that will be meaningful and appreciated more than you know. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Tell her you respect the work she's doing, you think it's important, and you think she's doing a great job. We don't hear this enough.
Post the above on social media, tag her, and encourage your network to use her service/product.
Ask her if there is something specific you can do to help her. Make an introduction, have a strategy call, review a document or marketing copy, etc.
Read on for news about our Pitch it Plan™ (PiP) MVP release, our investor member access, where to catch me speaking, and our featured founder. There's a lot this month!
Thank you for reading this. Thank you for helping me. I appreciate you.

In Your Words
Each newsletter features the perspective of one of our members.
This month’s featured founder is Kathryn Rose, Founder and CEO of wiseHer. wiseHer is an expert marketplace that provides on-demand expert advice for women to accelerate their business or career growth. Forbes took notice of her incredible work and included her on The Next 1000 2021 list!
wiseHer has nearly 1,000 experts in 26 countries! If you've ever wished you could just pick up the phone (or zoom) and talk out a business problem with someone who's been there and done that, that's exactly what wiseHer provides! Get tactical help with things like marketing, sales, fundraising, resume reviews, mock interviews, and more at an affordable price.
“I built wiseHer because of my own personal experience -- I was a casualty of the last global economic recession and what got me to start my business was the advice I received from paid experts. Their practical, tactical advice allowed me to start my first company in two weeks and grow it successfully. I wanted to provide that same access and affordability to business owners and professionals around the world."
