Rebecca Liebman turned heads when she entered a PerfectPitch competition at SXSW in 2018. The competition was orchestrated by Sound Ventures a venture capitalist firm run by Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary. Matthew McConaughey and the CEO of Salesforce Marc Benioff were other familiar names on the judging panel.

Liebman was supposed to walk away with an investment of $100k, but Kutcher and Oseary were so excited by the company’s potential that they doubled their investment. If that wasn’t enough Benioff matched it and the Clark University graduate walked out of the meeting with a $400k investment.
