Dude, Where’s My Investor? How to Pitch to Ashton Kutcher and Other Big-Name Investors
For the FOMO generation, missing the boat is unthinkable. Fortunately, event booking app YPlan renders that almost impossible. Founded by Lithuanian friends Vitkauskas (who set up his first company at 14) and Jucikas after they packed in their lucrative jobs at Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs, YPlan lets users browse last-minute gigs, food tastings, theatre shows and gallery exhibitions. The app has had over 2m downloads since launch. And the founders aren’t just lucky fans: YPlan counts Pharrell Williams and Ashton Kutcher among its investors.
