Today we are excited to announce the second member of the 14th Founder Showcase judging panel, James Cham of Bloomberg Beta.

James is a Partner at Bloomberg Beta, a new $75 million fund backed by Bloomberg L.P. Previously, James was a Principal at Trinity Ventures and a VP at Bessemer Venture Partners, investing in consumer services, enterprise software and digital media companies. While at Bessemer, James was a board member at CrowdFlower and Open Candy, and observer at LifeLock, ReputationDefender, and BillShrink.

At the event, the judges will help us launch several early stage startups to greatness as they evaluate and provide feedback for participants of both our Pitch Competition and Demo Table Competition.

In addition to the entertaining pitch competitions, guests will also enjoy a series of early-stage startup workshops, led by Phil Libin (CEO of Evernote), Nir Eyal (Acclaimed Author and Speaker), and Joe Abraham (CEO & Founder, BOSI Global).
