The 15th Founder Showcase is just a few days away, taking place on Thursday, May 15th in Mountain View. This is TheFunded.com's startup pitch and networking event, where we gather great speakers and investors to help early-stage entrepreneurs.
At this event, anyone who purchases a ticket has an opportunity to pitch on stage in front of hundreds of investors, founders, and press.
That’s right. In addition to the six companies who will be competing on stage in the Pitch Competition, all attendees get to participate in the CrowdPitch Competition. All you have to do is purchase a ticket and submit your one-sentence company pitch for a chance to present on stage. No other event offers so much!
Get your tickets before they sell out at http://foundershowcase.com/tickets. Use the code 'friends_of_thefunded' to get a 20% discount.
Confirmed to speak at the event are Mitch Kapor (Founder of Lotus Development, Kapor Capital & Kapor Center for Social Impact, and PC Industry Pioneer), Mike Maples Jr. (Managing Partner at FLOODGATE, and the #14 Top Tech Investor in the world by Forbes), and Thomas Korte (Founder of AngelPad, one of the world's leading startup accelerators).
In addition, investor panelists include Manu Kumar (K9 Ventures), James Cham (Bloomberg Beta), Alex Gurevich (Javelin Venture Partners), Boris Wertz (Version One Ventures), Aydin Senkut (Felicis Ventures), Frank Chen (Andreessen Horowitz), Jeff Richards (GGV Capital), and more.
Guests will mingle over appetizers and drinks in a networking hall, and all attendees get free access to the exclusive Founder Showcase Casino Afterparty at NASA Ames!
