New York tech, join us for a #PitchandRun!

#PitchandRun has come a long way in the last few years — something I’ve been reflecting on after Ryan Deffenbaugh joined us for a recent run and wrote about it in Crain’s New York.

Why put pitching and running together? We started the group in 2019 as a way for founders and investors in New York’s tech community to speak freely, get to know each other, get feedback, and PITCH (!) outside of a four-walled conference room, all while getting exercise. We were partially inspired by Hot Ones on YouTube — we’re not quite as extreme, but we also believe that when a little sweat hits the brow and heart rates increase, so does the conversation.
