On May 18th, TheFunded will host the third Founder Showcase in Silicon Valley to highlight the twelve best seed-stage startups from around the world. The evening event will include two strong talks by Phil Libin of Evernote and Bubba Murarka of Facebook in between three minute pitches, food and drinks. The event has historically attracted 250 founders, early-stage investors, angels, bloggers and other guests. TheFunded is offering two dozen discounted tickets to Members below, and the event is expected to sell out in the next few days:
Of the twelve companies that pitch, TheFunded will choose four seed-stage startups to present, and eight other companies will earn a spot on stage by vote of the 14,000 Members on the Showcase section of TheFunded. Every Member is encouraged to take five minutes, review some of the pitches and vote for the ones that you support:
Presenting seed-stage companies have closed over one million dollars worth of investment through relationships started at the Showcase. Any company that is less than two years old and has raised less than $250,000 is invited to create a Showcase profile and secure enough peer votes to make it on stage. You can start a profile now at the link below:
The Showcase format has been enhanced with...
- A new Panel of Investors and Mentors to review pitches
- The two best pitches by audience vote will face off in a "Showcase Showdown"
- The Runner-Up will receive $1,000 in free legal from Cooley
- The Grand Prize Winner will get $2,500 in cash and $2,000 in free legal from Cooley
More prizes will be announced. Thank you, and enjoy!PRIVATE: Members Only
