Six months after launching to the public, the Series B investment comes at a time of significant growth and momentum for Pitch. To date, tens of thousands of teams have opened 125,000 workspaces on Pitch, including top companies like Intercom, Superhuman and Notion.
“Our mission at Pitch is to enable every team’s best thinking,” said Christian Reber, Founder & CEO of Pitch. “It’s been six months since we launched to the world, and tens of thousands of teams have already discovered how easy it is to create, collaborate on and deliver beautiful presentations on Pitch. We’re thrilled to have two world-class partners in Tiger Global and Lakestar onboard as we pursue our vision to build the first complete platform for presentations.”
A new kind of platform
To accelerate its momentum in the year ahead, Pitch plans to use the new funding to develop its core technology and product, grow its global team, and extend its software platform across the entire presentation workflow.
- A publishing and content ecosystem: Pitch is building a dedicated home for publishing and exchanging presentations and templates. In this new ecosystem, users will be able to discover content from top creators and brands, and publish their own work directly to public profile pages. In the upcoming weeks, Pitch will launch the first of these pages for a select group of creators, and will open up access to all users later this year.
- Advanced presentation analytics: Pitch is building new integrated solutions for users to better distribute presentations and monitor performance. Rolling out in multiple stages this summer, these new features will enable secure sharing and advanced analytics within Pitch, and will give users detailed insights into the reach and readership of a presentation, engagement levels on specific slides, and more.
- Narrative recording and playback: Pitch is building new ways to highlight, record, and play back presentations in any context. Designed for a more remote, asynchronous world of work, these tools will ensure presenters and recipients can engage across an expanded range of meeting formats and team workflows. These tools are currently in beta, and will be rolled out in stages to users in the coming months.
“The exciting vision that Christian and the team at Pitch have is beyond just being a superior alternative to legacy presentation software," said Stephen Nundy, Partner at Lakestar. "A reimagining of the entire workflow surrounding presentations is very much overdue, and when coupled with the ability to harness new data and media integrations, Pitch will lead the way in changing how stories are told. I’m very proud to be joining the board of a European company with its sights set on a truly global opportunity.”
“We are incredibly impressed by the quality of Pitch’s offering today and Christian’s vision for the future. Pitch will be a true productivity platform, and we are excited to become investors in this special company,” says John Curtius, Partner at Tiger Global.
Pitch offers both free and paid plans for teams of all sizes. With Pitch Pro, teams unlock access to unlimited storage, video uploads, version history, and advanced permissioning for $10 per member per month.

Teva Presents New Data at 7th European Academy of Neurology Congress Suggesting Socio-Economic Factors May Contribute to the Significant Under-Diagnosis of Migraine21.6.2021 14:01:00 CEST | Press release
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) today presented new epidemiology data on migraine from the State of Israel which indicate that socio-economic factors may contribute to underdiagnosis of migraine across society1. A retrospective study of migraine epidemiology in Southern Israel, supported by Teva and presented at the virtual 7th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), found extreme variability in the prevalence of diagnosed patients with migraine across the geographic area studied. Prevalence rates were positively associated with the socio-economic status of the geographic area studied, suggesting that those living with migraine from less advantaged areas may find it harder to achieve an accurate diagnosis and thereby access appropriate therapy. “These findings are concerning not least because they suggest significant ‘migraine awareness inequity’ in this population,” said Professor Gal Ifergane, study investigator, practitioner, head of the Depart
