What is pitch Hearstlab?

A new kind of pitch event

Pitch HearstLab is our pitch competition series where we aim to find and fund the best high-growth, women-led startups in the US. Our mission is to close the gap in venture capital funding for women by helping founders build healthy, sustainable and highly scalable businesses.

After applications are evaluated, finalists will be invited to pitch in-person in front of a live audience and our panel of esteemed judges. 

Winners will receive a $100,000 investment from HearstLab, plus three months of hands-on support to help your company reach its goals in building the business, product and team. Investment and support are subject to due diligence and mutual agreement to terms.
