This Brooklyn VC Will Workshop Your Startup Pitch If You Donate To Charity


Charlie O'Donnell

Brooklyn venture capitalist Charlie O’Donnell signed up for four charity runs/triathalons/running-up-steps events this spring and summer, pledging nearly $9,000. And then realized: that’s actually a lot of money!

So he did some problem solving and came up with a solution: to workshop funding pitches for founders in exchange for a donation to his pledges. It’s called Fix Your Startup Pitch For Good, and for $200, up to eight startuppers can pitch him and get live feedback on what works and what doesn’t about their pitch. Onlookers can even come and watch for a $25 donation.
