I recently received notice of a contest called ‘Pitching Across America’ to find the ‘hottest emerging companies across america’ who are seeking venture capital, so I wanted to make all of my small business readers aware of it.
2009 is the 6th year this contest has been held, and this year’s competition currently includes 130 Venture Capital and Angel Investor judges. During each of the last 5 years, 50 companies have been selected to achieve investment funding based on the Executive Summary of their business plan.
During 2009, there will be 50 Top-rated Companies selected from across the US, and of those, 1 Company will be selected as the Top Emerging Company in America. All 50 companies will receive exclusive access to pitch to investors at FundingPost CEO events, inclusion in a featured VC mailing, a full year listing on FundingPost online, and the Top Emerging Company will even be able to pitch for free at every FundingPost event nationwide! All of the previous years winners have raised capital since winning the competition!!
You can read the profiles of the participating VC and Angel Investor judges online by clicking HERE, and learn more about the contest and how to enter by clicking HERE. You can enter until August 14th.
If your company is seeking to raise capital, then you need to explore this year’s ‘Pitching Across America’ competition, sponsored by Duane Morris.
