Due to very high volume of inbound pitches, we created this form to help founders stand out . It gives you priority and expedites the entire process, making it quicker to provide expert feedback and/or schedule a meeting with you as the next step.

This form is not a requirement to get in touch with us, but these questions will come up at some point while evaluating your team, idea, product and vision.

Please enter the url of a 1 minute unlisted (not private) YouTube video introducing yourself. *

Instructions:

In the video, you can begin by introducing yourself and explaining what you’re doing and why. Add anything else you want about yourself, your founders or the project.

The video should be one minute long and should be uploaded to YouTube. 

If you don’t want other people to find it, mark it as unlisted. Don’t mark it as private or disallow embedding, or we won’t be able to see it. The video should contain nothing except you talking. 

No screenshots or postproduction wizardry is needed; it doesn't need to be a video making contest. If you’re going to spend time making something cool, put it into your demo/product. 

Please do not recite a script written beforehand. Talk on camera spontaneously as you would to a friend. People delivering memorized speeches (or worse still, text read off the screen) usually come off as weird. 

Please do not add any background music to your video. 

Before submitting the video, you should try playing it yourself, and check that you can hear the audio so we don't end up with a video that has no audio.
 
How can we help? *

Thanks.
 You should receive a response from us within no more than 72 hours.
