At this event, one of our regular Founders, Erik Ekland of Telemetrak got some funding and he has consistently raised more funds across Q2 of 2020. It was great to get a shout from another of our regulars: “Thanks for introducing me to a leading Bank in Silicon Valley. That led to us getting a line of credit” --- Russ Jones of Cargo Chief (you can see him Pitching at the above video) We paired the Founders of Virtanza and Champions Round with the CEO of Expert Dojo LA which funded both of them in the COVID era. They also funded Meet Caregivers whose founder we met at the largest conference in silicon valley and invited her to Pitch with us after which she raised considerable amount from Pipeline Angels whose representative she met at our event. Later she got funding from Nex3/Sway Ventures which has invested in more than 10 startups they have met in our events including Ootify, the Sponsor of this video from one of our LA events where we have the local Heads of TIE, Plug&Play, Keiretsu Forum and others present. https://youtu.be/wBpvGUCunn4   Innovation& Entrepreneurial Education : Pitch Global has become a satellite of SBA affiliated agency as we are sponsored by US govt to Mentor startups with job creating potential. As a result of the Mentoring, which is FREE for selected startups as US Govt is paying us, cos like Ursaleo, Realkey, Plethy, Tutorfly etc have all gone on to raise solid capital.
