John Livesay, host of the podcast, The Successful Pitch, partners with #1 best selling author Judy Robinett to create private Facebook group ecosystem for global investors and successful startup founders to network and get their startup funded fast.
John Livesay, host of The Successful Pitch podcast and Judy Robinett, Inc., #1 best selling author of How to Be A Power Connector, announced today the collaborative launch of The Successful Pitch Podcast Guest Group private Facebook group for guests of The Successful Pitch podcast, allowing guests access to an exclusive network of global investors and successful founders who share insights and criteria to becoming insiders in the world of getting funded.
“I am thrilled to have Judy Robinett, with her expertise in funding and connecting people, as my co-host of the Facebook group,” says Livesay. “The venture capital experience and relationships she brings to the table is what makes her known as the woman with the ‘Titanium Rolodex.’ Who knows? Maybe our guests will get to know each other so well they end up funding one or more startups.”
The creation of the The Successful Pitch Podcast Guest Group Facebook network models Judy’s book concept of being in the “right room” with key players to accelerate entrepreneurs and investors business goals. While many founders and investors may network within their own city, they don’t know or have introductions to key investors in their industry nationally let alone globally. Livesay’s The Successful Pitch podcast hosts guests worldwide.
“Partnering with John Livesay was easy, as his network of expert guests spans the globe from key players like Australia’s Alan Jones at BlueChilli Group, Israel’s Danny Cohen at Carmel Ventures to London’s Lex Deak at QVentures, making him a true power connector,” said Robinett.
Additionally, Livesay is contributing to Robinett’s new mastermind, “Crack The Funding Code,” where she is accepting qualified startup founders in an exclusive mentorship to assist them in getting their startup funded fast.
