The Pitch

Josh Muccio & Sheel Mohnot

A show where real entrepreneurs pitch to real investors—for real money. In each episode, we take you behind closed doors to the critical moment when aspiring entrepreneurs put it all on the line. The Pitch delivers on the high-stakes promise of a live pitch without shying away from the nitty gritty details of what happens after everyone shakes hands and walks out of the room. Hosted by Josh Muccio from Gimlet Media.

Hykso (Season 2, Episode 4)

In October 2016, we followed 12 startups behind the scenes, to a critical moment, a single defining moment, where entrepreneurs leverage past success, to secure the funds they need today.

Today, season 2 of the pitch continues with a startup that’s making their version of a Fitbit. The founders have developed a product that they believe is going to revolutionize the fitness industry. Will investors go all in on this new hardware company, or are the risks simply too high?
