Why has BulletPitch achieved success in the enterprise and business media landscape? The newsletter is fresh, clean and simple and distinctive in its Gen Z persona. The newsletter sends out a bulleted summary of a new startup each week, giving subscribers a more complete picture of the company’s ability to disrupt the industry. Each newsletter describes a company in the shortest possible terms with similarities to provide a clear understanding. The one minute read is funny and captivating.
It may surprise you to learn that the authors of this newsletter are two college students, Brett Perlmutter and Sam Segal. He currently attends Middlebury College, a liberal arts school in Vermont with an emphasis on writing and language. According to Perlmutter and Segal, the idea for BulletPitch came from an hour-long conversation in the dining hall about early-stage startups. The co-founders found that the best way to learn about early-stage startups was from each other, and the media failed to capture the stories of early-stage companies or products in beta. Thus, BulletPitch was formed to fill a gap in the media of concise, legible early startup coverage.
Both have quickly amassed a large client base of venture capitalists, angel investors, founders, business students, and anyone interested in learning about disruption in the business world. Regardless of Gen Z perspective, BulletPitch writes strategically on companies that attract every generation. After all, who doesn’t want to know about the latest dating app or the best new music discovery platform?

In addition to running bulletpitch, Perlmutter competes on Middlebury’s NCAA swim team. He has experience working in the venture space for both Loeb.nyc and 25madison. Segal instructs spin classes at Middlebury and sings in an acapella group. His professional experience is in Growth Equity at Paramira and Level Equity.
Perlmutter and Sehgal are in constant communication with the founders to build relationships and learn. The founders have become attracted to BulletPitch’s customer base which may include future investors, employees and customers.
