The idea was to digitize the advisory work delivered through Elevera Advisers, a growth advisory firm helping tech companies grow and secure venture capital. The business intelligence provided was previously reserved for ventures with big budgets and unlimited resources.
Every entrepreneur deserves a fair opportunity to succeed
Pitchago is built by a group of individuals that are passionate about entrepreneurship. Our vision is to empower founders with preparation as a “digital accelerator,” regardless of where they are in the world! We want to help entrepreneurs pitch to the right investors and understand what’s required to raise venture capital before the first meetings.
The result is a quick and easy self-assessment that allows companies to understand where they stand as a startup, what type of investor they should be approaching, “best practice” and where to focus efforts to get “investor-ready.”
Our mission is to grow entrepreneurship by empowering and equipping motivated, experienced and first-time entrepreneurs with knowledge on how to expand, develop and fund their business to ensure continued global economic growth.
The Investor & The Entrepreneur
Pitchago Founder Thorgeir Einarsson has raised over $150m in venture capital through his startups in Silicon Valley and the UK and is a trusted financial adviser for many startup ventures in Europe.
When I was a Founder and CEO of my startup in Palo Alto, California, in the late ’90s and early 2000, I spent half of my time on funding activities. If I had received more help and support with the fundraising, I could have focused on running the actual business. I started Elevera Advisers in 2006 to do just that; to help fellow founders prepare and execute funding rounds. The focus has been Series A and above, from institutional investors like VCs to corporate investors, family offices, and super angels. Over the years, we have developed a playbook for preparing and executing a structured fundraising process. With Pitchago, we digitized the playbook and the “investment readiness” process to make the advice easily accessible to entrepreneurs on a global scale.
We also hope to offer investors, accelerators, and incubators a platform to help assess investments and support portfolio companies in the never-ending quest for growth and excellence!Thank you for giving Pitchago a chance, and we look forward to receiving your feedback and suggestions for improvement.
