The PitchMark Pledge

I pledge to Innovators that they can trust me with their ideas.

As a professional in my field, I pledge to communicate with Innovators in a transparent and clear way if there is a dispute, such as when I receive ideas unsolicited , or I have already been working on a similar idea before receiving the pitch, or similar ideas are pitched to me from unconnected sources.

I will benefit from taking the pledge by not having to pay pitch fees.

Take the pledge now - it's free!
