Open Pitch – A vision to connect Indians with small businesses and freelancers

Open Pitch is a social platform which helps businesses and freelancers to market their services and products to the world. Started in October 2020, Open Pitch has added 1,000+ businesses across multiple categories to help these businesses gain visibility and reach out to potential customers.

Starting with two categories in October 2020, Open Pitch now has 48 unique categories like tutors, astrologers, dance teachers, online groceries and may others. All these categories have multiple business listings providing rich information to customers about these businesses, location, type of services they provide etc. Customers in India looking for any services in and around their location can visit Open Pitch and find the best suitable service provider for their need. Open Pitch has rich set of filters which helps customers further refine search results and find the most suited business according to their requirement. Filters like online availability, proximity search which helps customers find services within 1 km to 100 km from their location (pincode) further helps in enhancing the search experience on Open Pitch.

On the other hand, adding a business on Open Pitch is very simple. Businesses need to create their account and add their business profile by providing details like name of the business, address, contact details, relevant photos / videos, time of operation, website address (if any) and a few other details. Open Pitch has a moderation process for all profiles created to ensure quality. Profiles are published only after thorough review.

With the pandemic in 2020 leading to massive job losses and unemployment, we felt the need to create a platform where small entrepreneurs could pitch their services easily. Our goal is to also help new entrepreneurs, home makers and retired professionals looking for online gigs to be easily discoverable. We’re excited to see the overwhelming response from businesses. With a very successful 3 months in 2020, our goal is to serve thousands more businesses and customers in 2021.” said Mr. Kumar, founder of Open Pitch.
