In just one year we've grown the Founder Showcase to be Silicon Valley's Premier Startup Pitch and Networking Event. The winner of each event has received funding from an investor they met at the event, and countless other presenting companies have received funding as well - over $2mm in total. The best part for us, however, is that all the companies presenting at the event and getting financed are members of TheFunded.
The 5th Founder Showcase is coming up on Thursday, Oct. 21st in Mountain View, CA. We previously declared 2010 "The Year of the Angel", so we're very happy to announce that Super Angel Mike Maples Jr., Managing Partner of FLOODGATE and early investor in Twitter and Digg, will be speaking and judging pitches at the event. In all we expect over 300 in attendance, include over 40 investors. Check out this video recapping the last event, and reserve your tickets today. The last three Showcases have completely sold out.
Applications to pitch on stage at the event are also now open. The competition is free, and any company less than 2 years old and with less than $500k in funding can apply. Click here for more information.
Finally, we've also teamed up with BizTechDay, the largest and most impactful business and technology entrepreneur conference, to offer technology entrepreneurs access to both events on October 21st and 23rd in the Bay Area for a reduced bundled price. By attending the Showcase and BizTechDay, you will meet and learn from the brightest minds and most promising startups in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Only 25 bundled tickets are available, so reserve yours today.
We hope to see you at the Founder Showcase.PRIVATE: Members Only
