Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-07-16

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.


UPDATE: 

The winner of the 14th Founder Showcase CrowdPitch Competiton is Knightscope. Here is their winning one-sentence pitch; 

 

My company Knightscope is developing self-driving robots to help organizations reduce costs and fight crime more effectively with automated alerts of suspicious behavior.


Congratulations to William Santana Li and Knightscope, who will get to pitch for 3 minutes onstage to a panel of experts at tomorrow's event!

 

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

My company, Folkzy, is an online service that lets families post life moments to a shared household account and keeps followers up-to-date via periodic email summaries of what's new.

My company, SmartMeal, is an Android application that suggests the user's favorite meal. This application is based on a smart search engine that knows the user's favorite tastes and dishes regarding past dietary choices.


The 14th Founder Showcase event is on Wednesday, March 27th in Mountain View, and will feature Phil Libin (Evernote), Nir Eyal (Acclaimed Author and Speaker), and Joe Abraham (BOSI Global) as speakers. Get your tickets today.
