Next Level Ventures Leads Seed Funding Round for
Des Moines-based Cloud Content Services Provider  

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA – August 21, 2018 –  Pitchly, Inc., the leading cloud-based content service platform for professional service firms to organize and activate their proprietary client experience, today announced that the company has completed a seven-figure seed funding round led by Next Level Ventures, with participation by M25, Great North Labs and local investors. The announcement was made this morning at ILTACON, the International Legal Technology Association Conference where Pitchly is exhibiting (booth #1036) and speaking at a pre-keynote educational session.


“Pitchly has reached the stage of product and business development where this cash infusion is advantageous to accelerate our sales and marketing growth,” explained Ryan Gerhardy, CEO of Pitchly. “We appreciate the confidence Next Level Ventures and the other seed round participants have in our technology and vision.”


Pitchly organizes individual and group experiences in a structured data platform that allows clients to produce compelling content that leverages the collective knowledge base. Typically, these are manual efforts; Pitchly adds the intelligence to make pitch books, presentations and other client-facing media compelling and repeatable, while allowing organizations to perform research and analytics on prior client service engagements.


This year the company has more than doubled its employee base, while growing subscription revenue by more than 400%. Pitchly recently moved into new office space in downtown Des Moines and has released version two of its Platform-as-a-Service application. Pitchly has built a customer base of global law firms, accounting firms, and investment banks.

“We purchased Pitchly to manage our Tombstones, but it quickly become the preferred Knowledge Management Solution for the Business Development team” said Claire Thompson, Business Development Manager at Choate Hall & Stewart, a $200M international law practice headquartered in Boston.

Pitchly subscriptions are available from the company’s website. Organizations can also contact Pitchly directly at 917-417-1335 and
