About Score My Pitch
Are You Operating with Tools Out of the Dark Ages?
Paper Ballots • Tabulating Scores by Hand • Trying to Interpret Illegible Judge Comments • Failing to Give Your Entrepreneurs Consistent and Timely Feedback • Limiting Your Ability to Measure Each Entrepreneurs Progress and Your Programs Impact Over Time?
Score My Pitch is a web-based pitch event judging and feedback system that helps you automate, professionalize and create more value in your entrepreneurial ecosystem.
In the most benign of sporting events competitors know exactly how they did. Take a simple 5k road race, within moments of finishing, competitors know their time, overall rank, age group and gender rank, and their pace. This data is used to benchmark progress, adjust methods and model higher performing athletes. Attentive athletes and their coaches improve results quickly.
Score My Pitch creates the same effect for entrepreneurship ecosystems.
- Organizers use their own criteria or leverage our experience to create the ultimate rubric, they can easily get real time judging results, and they can share results discretely or broadly for exceptional learning and promotional benefits.
- Judges enter their scores and comments easily. We’re finding that on average judges enter 9x more text comments in our system than on those Medieval paper-based forms...besides everything that they enter in our system is legible!
- Accelerators and Incubators use the scorecard for mentor and coaching sessions to assure consistent evaluation criteria, automate feedback and create a record of each teams progress.
- Mentors and Coaches add to their toolkit real time learning about how to best help their team(s).
- Entrepreneurs benchmark progress and model the behaviors of those who are more evolved.
- Audiences participate in the judging and feedback where appropriate.
Score My Pitch provides your ecosystem of entrepreneurs, mentors, coaches, judges and organizers with the mission critical tools to help each entrepreneur quickly draft and improve their pitch. Mentors, coaches, judges and organizers now have a systematic way to accelerate entrepreneurial development.

Our team is passionate about driving entrepreneurial success around the world. Collectively we attend hundreds of pitch events each year.
Why did we form? Like you, we are tired of feeling anxious about and unprepared to deliver our pitches, we want to know how our words will be responded to before we step in front the ‘important’ audience, and because our mom is no longer giving us the feedback that we need!
Headquartered in Ivoryton, Connecticut, USA, Test My Pitch began at Startup Weekend Storrs, CT in March of 2013.
We are here to serve you, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions, ideas, comments!
