Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-03-26

With the CrowdPitch Competition, anyone who purchases a Founder/CEO or table ticket to the Founder Showcase has an opportunity to pitch on stage in front of hundreds of investors, founders, and press.

No other event gives attendees access to so much.



The winner of the 13th Founder Showcase CrowdPitch Competiton is Chamisa. Here is their winning one-sentence pitch; 


My company Chamisa is developing a cloud based computer repair solution to help IT proffessionals save hours of time repairing sick computers by completely automating the process.

Congratulations to Tim Cook and Chamisa, who will get to speed pitch the crowd at tomorrow's event!


There were several great pitches, so this was a hard decision. Honorable mentions include; 

My company, iLobby, is developing a political persuasion platform to help small business and disgruntled voters gain access to high-priced, effective lobbying through crowd funding.

My company, RealCrowd, is developing a crowdfunding real estate platform to help investors purchase pre-vetted commercial real estate investments across the nation leveraging our $3B of industry experience.

The 13th Founder Showcase event is on Wednesday, March 27th in Mountain View, and will feature Chris Dixon (Andreessen Horowitz) and Keith Rabois (Khosla Ventures) as Keynote Speakers.
