|The Pitted platform brings extensive Amazon channel expertise, logistics resources, and its own technology solutions. We are already invested.||vs||Spend much of their time networking to identify deal opportunities, leaving little time for due diligence and ongoing investment support.|
|The possession of early-stage, qualified leads organically generated through Pitted core businesses gives us an upper hand and creates efficiency for the Pitted Ventures team.||vs||If a successful investment track record is obtained, they typically size up their fund sizes for larger management fees; Therefore, there is a regular churn of investors operating in the emerging consumer products VC space, leaving a gap for consistency and core competencies.|
