Founder at Toot

E-commerce

Why did you choose Pitchdrive?

Sourcing angel investors was taking up 80% of my time as a founder, which was slowing our business down too much. Pitchdrive took away this pain and brought together a group of relevant active investors.

What was the biggest change working with Pitchdrive compared to traditional fundraising methods?

I felt like the terms were very transparent and founder-friendly as the contracts are standardised. They helped me out with our questions about the contracts and it felt like they were 'in our corner' to an extent to drive a win-win deal.

Fintech

Why did you choose Pitchdrive?

They understood the concept way better than any VC I spoke to, they asked the hard questions and their experience with finance especially made me believe we were picking the right platform.

What was the biggest change working with Pitchdrive compared to traditional fundraising methods?

Most VC’s have this 2–3 week period of first communication, but with Pitchdrive it was about a day or two which was crazy. I pitched Rift Pay to them and it picked up from there! It was the smoothest process for a founder you could imagine, especially considering the speed they bring.

    What are the benefits of raising a Pitchdrive round?



    Raising money through Pitchdrive from angel investors has all the benefits of a ‘traditional angel round’, except with us you don’t have to put your promising startup on hold for months and transition to the full time job of ‘fundraiser’ to land your funds.

    We conduct the entire process on standardised founder-friendly documents and everything is handled online - no more visits to the notary!

    What is the process for founders?



    Start off by creating your account here, then fill out your Pitchdrive profile to highlight the most critical and impressive aspects of your startup.

    When your profile is ready, we’ll do a call together to refine your message (being startup investors ourselves, we’ve seen a lot of pitches!)

    Once your profile is approved you’ll go live to investors and you can follow your progress and answer questions from interested investors on your funding status page.
  • Can I come back and resume building my profile?

    Can I come back and resume building my profile?



    Yes you can, just hit save at any point while building your profile and you can return later to resume where you left off. In fact, the best profiles are built this way - it’s usually best to start with a rough first version then return to finetune it.
  • We hit our funding goal, can we still raise more?

    We hit our funding goal, can we still raise more?



    First of all, congratulations!

    Choosing to go further and extend your investment target is very common in the fundraising world.

    In Pitchdrive if you hit your target and decide you are open to allowing a few more investors to get involved, you can agree an Overdrive amount to extend your fundraising - the investments made in this phase function in exactly the same way as your regular fundraising.
