Since we introduced Pitch last year, we've been hard at work building our product. Today, we're excited to share the news that we are inviting the first teams and companies to use Pitch.

We’re also announcing that we’ve raised $30 million in additional funding from Thrive Capital and existing investors. Co-investors include Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger from Instagram and Rahul Vohra from Superhuman, among others. It’s super exciting to have them join our journey, as these companies, much like Slack and Zoom and so many more, are truly changing the way we communicate, collaborate, and get work done.

In recent weeks we’ve had the honor of inviting teams whose products we use and are inspired by, like Notion and Framer, to be among the first testers of Pitch. Over the coming months, we’ll be inviting more teams progressively to learn from their feedback so we can offer the best possible experience once we make it publicly available.

Building a truly delightful user experience has always been our top priority, so we put a lot of time into understanding the problems people have with presentation software. We teamed up with our good friends at MetaLab, one of the world's most renowned product design agencies, and through interviews, surveys, and focus groups, we learned why people love presentations, why people hate them, and what we could do to make the whole experience significantly better.

Pitch is a new kind of presentation software, with superpowers that you’ve always wanted in a modern tool. Smart formatting and custom-crafted templates make designing beautiful slides feel like magic. Collaboration features help you stay up-to-date on progress, reuse and remix the best content from your team and stay on brand. Real-time communication means teams can work smoothly together — no matter where they are or what device they’re using, online and offline.

Feedback like this makes us excited that we’re on the right track. More than just building a presentation software, we see Pitch as a huge opportunity to have a real impact on how people make decisions and distribute information.

What others are saying

Finally — a solution to designing, sharing and viewing beautiful presentations online! Pitch is an elegant solution for the modern business.

Kevin Systrom

Founder of Instagram

I had the great privilege to try an early version of Pitch. The vision and execution are world class, and you will agree with me after you get on the beta.

Eric S. Yuan

Founder of Zoom

Finally someone who’s tackling presentations the right way.

Ben Lang

Marketing at Notion

No more needing to decide between outdated aesthetics or working with desktop files, Pitch combines the best of modern design with online convenience.

Nick Franklin

Founder of ChartMogul

After spending the last few weeks building decks for a new company, I’m happy to say that Pitch is a game changer. You all need to get on the beta immediately.

Andrew Wilkinson

Founder of MetaLab

Pitch is an impressive new take on how you create, present and share ideas with anyone. Your ideas deserve Pitch.

Koen Bok

Founder of Framer

Hundreds of millions of people rely on presentations to communicate their most important ideas, yet until now, they haven’t had great software to support them. Given the amount of critical decisions being made across business, politics, education, and creative communities through the medium of presentations, Pitch has the ambition to shape how people work and spark change.

We’re looking forward to moving into the next phase of our journey and starting to welcome more of you along for the ride.
