Manu Kumar of K9 Ventures Joins 14th Founder Showcase Judging Panel

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-07-11

Today we are excited to announce the fourth member of the 14th Founder Showcase judging panel, Manu Kumar of K9 Ventures.

Manu previously founded, grew and sold two successful ventures, including SneakerLabs, Inc. – a company which developed software and services for web-based customer interaction – and iMeet, Inc. – a provider of webconferencing services. After the merger of iMeet with Netspoke (August 2002), Manu served on the Board of Netspoke until its acquisition by Premiere Global Services (August 2005). He also serves as an investor and/or advisor for Refocus Imaging, Dolores Labs (CrowdFlower), Twilio, DNAnexus, and others.

Manu will join Noah Doyle, James Cham, Jon Soberg, and one additional judge to be announced later this week. 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).
