About us

You're probably thinking...

- "I’ve got this big idea, but where do I start?
- Where are all the investors hiding?
- F**k... I really want to quit my job, but how will I pay the bills?"

Starting a startup is really hard.

We get it, because we failed multiple startups before eventually building any meaningful companies.

We started pitchblak to give early-stage founders access to a hands-on team with real experience in turning big ideas into great startups.
9 Commandments

Our 9 Commandments. What we stand for (and what we can't stand).

Our work is our play.
If you look forward to Fridays more than Mondays, it's time to make a change. The majority of your life is spent at work. Luckily, you get to decide what *work* is.
Chase the energy.
Life is too short to waste time on the wrong stuff. We chase the ideas, people and experiences that fill us with energy. You can create your own family.
Do what you say.
What you say means nothing if you don't follow through. Trust is everything... it's slow to gain and quick to lose.
If it's not a f**k yeah, it's a no.
You don't have to struggle for hours to make decisions if you only choose to pursue what feels like an astounding F**k Yes!
Hugs not handshakes.
Let's be real... handshakes are awkward and outdated. Left-handed people with sweaty palms still need love. Bonus points if you hug us when we first meet.
Ask someone.
There's always someone within reach with the answer to your burning question. So find them, and ask. If they're dead, then read their book.
Do something about it.
Do you see a problem or an opportunity to fix something? Why complain about the world when we can be curious and brave enough to make it better?
Test, don't guess.
Trusting your gut is fine... until it isn’t. Experiments, data, iteration and being incredibly close to your customer is the only way to create change.
10x your vision.
There's a magical thing that happens when delusional thinking and humility collide. Convince yourself, convince others, then figure out how to make it happen.
