Announcing the Fastest Pitch Form in Venture Capital
Ubiquity Ventures is able to respond to every pitch request within 72 hours - here’s how.
Ubiquity Ventures is excited to announce the launch of the fastest pitch form in venture capital, with the goal of making our firm available to the founder community in a streamlined way: https://pitch.ubiquity.vc
For early-stage founders working on software beyond the screen, this means that with just 60 seconds of your time filling out the Ubiquity pitch form, you’re guaranteed to hear back from the firm’s top decision maker within 72 hours with an invitation to schedule a meeting or an explanation of why we’re not a fit.
This sort of access and turnaround time is what I always wanted when I was an entrepreneur back in 2009, and I knew of nothing like this at any VC. In fact, many of the VCs that I was hearing onstage or on Twitter were saying that I would need to network my way to them, because if I couldn’t get a warm intro, then how good was I at the entrepreneurial hustle?
I hated this.
Like many founders today, I had the skills and the smarts but I wasn’t born in the right zip code to be part of the exclusive VC “in-crowd”. It was a catch-22 that I knew I wanted to rectify when I started my own VC firm.
So, how is it possible for Ubiquity to analyze and respond to every pitch form submission within 72 hours? There are two main reasons why we’re uniquely positioned to do this:
How It’s Possible #1: A Singular Focus
When I started Ubiquity Ventures in 2017, I knew I wanted to specialize in a single area: seed-stage startups that are moving software into the real world. This is my area of expertise and where I knew I could make the most impact on founders and their products.
I had heard stories of larger VC firms that marketed themselves as “jacks of all trades”, accepting all kinds of pitch submissions only for the majority of them to end up in a black hole inbox somewhere that nobody would ever see. It’s my opinion that when you open yourself up to looking at everything, you specialize in nothing, and I wanted to do the opposite of that with Ubiquity.
Having a singular focus has allowed Ubiquity to really dig into and master our chosen area, from understanding trends to quickly knowing when it’s best to pass - even if we’ve come across the next Facebook. Ubiquity was created to support early-stage companies focusing on software beyond the screen only, which means that if we invest, the help we (including our extended team) can offer is unparalleled.
How It’s Possible #2: Acting with Agency
Another reason Ubiquity can respond to all of the 60-second pitch form submissions within 24 hours is that we are structured to act with agency. While Ubiquity is supported by an entire ecosystem of 50+ technical experts, there is only one decision maker. For founders working on software beyond the screen who fill out the Ubiquity pitch form, this means there are no “middle man” gatekeepers to overcome. Instead of weaving through a convoluted web of analysts, associates and principals, you’ll have immediate access to the leader of the firm, who is personally reading through every single submission.
It’s impossible to have this level of agency when there are too many cooks in the kitchen, but with the Ubiquity pitch form, you avoid entirely the game of telephone that happens with larger firms. You are speaking directly to the sole decision maker, guaranteeing that your vision won’t get lost in translation and that your unbridled enthusiasm for your product and space is accurately and directly conveyed.
