Pitch, the scaleup looking to transform how workplace presentations are delivered, has raised $85 million.
The Series B was led by Lakestar and Tiger Global. Existing shareholders Thrive Capital and Index Ventures also participated.
The Berlin-based collaborative presentation platform will use the funds to “build the first complete platform for presentations, where anyone can discover, create, collaborate on, present, and publish their best thinking”.
“We’re unifying the entire workflow of presenting, so teams can go from draft to deck in no time, and presenters and audiences can connect anywhere, anytime. All in one place,” reads the company’s website.
“And we’re building an ecosystem where anyone can get inspired with templates crafted by experts, discover revolutionary ideas from top thinkers and makers, and publish playful storytelling and standout work,” it continues.
Rather unusually, Pitch was started by a team of eight co-founders. Today, the company, which is remote-first, employs more than 120 people.
Today’s news comes after Pitch raised $30 million in a round led by Thrive Capital approximately two years ago.
At the time, Pitch also drew investment from Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and Rahul Vohra (Superhuman’s founder).
Prior to that, the startup received $19 million from Index Ventures, BlueYard, Slack, and several other angel investors including Zoom’s CEO.
