Get More Done with Thumbraise
Thumbraise is an amazing new mobile app where startups can pitch investors through an incredibly simple video and text format, similar to Instagram Stories or Snapchat.

We built Thumbraise after talking to hundreds of founders and investors - including our own - and realizing that the company funding and deal sourcing processes were incredibly fractured. How is it that the most tech-forward industry in the world still relies on countless flights, phone calls, and email exchanges to get things done? Isn’t there a better way to do this online?

With Thumbraise, what used to take hours takes minutes, and what you could only do at scale with a large team can be done single handedly, on your phone, from the comfort of your home!
Unique Experience

Event attendees can watch founders tell their stories through their smartphones in a format similar to Instagram stories.
Simple Management

Set up your event's network in minutes and start inviting attendees to follow, pitch, or judge your event immediately.
Integrate Sponsors

We ensure your sponsors have simple targeted visibility via a showcase on your event, video, and article content.

Host your events

Set up your event network in minutes and start collecting pitches. Attendees can easily browse all the founder's pitches and connect. Founders will enjoy the ease of creating high quality, media rich pitches with minor effort.
Built by investors, for investors
If you’re an angel investor, venture capitalist, or startup competition that was forced to cancel an event or meeting, we strongly urge you to look at Thumbraise as an alternative. We can help you set up a “network” within our app (think private Slack channels) and you can then invite startups to come pitch you through the app. You can also add your colleagues or fellow jurors to review those pitches. All the startup pitches will be served up in an Instagram Stories-esque feed, and you and your colleagues will be able to browse through them at your own pace, in your own time, and from the safety of your home.

If you’re a startup hoping to get in front of investors and participate in events, you can now do that with a few taps on Thumbraise. Creating a full pitch takes a few minutes, and produces a high-quality, immersive experience that makes pitching in person irrelevant.
