It happens to millions of people a year. Maybe it’s happened to you. You’re in the grocery store or taking a shower or lying in your bed. And a big idea hits. A world changing idea. An idea that could make millions of dollars. 

Most of us, we file the idea away, and never do anything with it.

But sometimes, we decide to risk everything, and go after it. 

Leigh: I'm Leigh Isaacson, CEO and cofounder of Dig, the dog person's dating app

Khalil Zahar: We allow people to play combat sports without having to hit each other in the face.

Jacklyn Fu: We make bras that finally fit and celebrate women with small cup sizes. 

Stefan Loble: And now I’m here today to raise $600,000 to help men make their lives big and keep their wardrobes small. 

Welcome to The Pitch, from Gimlet. I’m your host, Josh Muccio. And on each episode of the show, you’ll hear real entrepreneurs pitch real investors… investors who don't make it easy.

Michael Hyatt: How do you make money?
