New Orleans-Based Dig Selected to Pitch on Gimlet Media’s Podcast

Dig is a New Orleans-based app for dog lovers. It’s designed for users to find someone who loves dogs as much as they do, or to find someone who will end up getting a dog with them in the future.

After competing against hundreds of other startups, Dig’s co-founder and CEO Leigh Isaacson was invited to pitch investors last week on Gimlet Media’s  podcast called The Pitch. The show provides a look inside how entrepreneurs sell their ideas and what helps make or break a business deal.

“We’re ecstatic to meet with the world-class investors on the show and to celebrate dogs and love with The Pitch listeners,” said Isaacson. “I’ve been a superfan of the show since I started Dig with my sister in 2017. Now, the host and the investors can join us as we connect dog-lovers who are looking to find more love in their life of the two-legged variety.”

Isaacson was selected after an open-call for submissions was opened in May. She called into the show and gave a quick pitch, which ultimately led to her live pitch in the studio.

The episode is expected to air when the new season starts on August 7. Visit to learn more about the startup.
