Introducing the Top Eight Finalists for the 12th #FounderShowcase Pitch Competition

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-10-30

Today we are excited to announce the top eight finalists who will be competing in the 12th Founder Showcase Pitch Competition on November 7th. From what was once a pool of over 60 early-stage startups, these companies have outlasted several rounds of elimination and will now be coming together in San Francisco to battle it out on stage. 

If you thought the first part of the process was grueling, just wait. These eight early-stage companies will now have to bring it full force and impress not only an audience filled with hundreds of investors and press, but five top Silicon Valley VCs, including David Hornik and Katherine Barr, who will provide constructive criticism and valuable feedback. 

Our eight finalists represent a variety of countries and cities, and will join an audience of over 600+ international investors, press, and attendees. Together we will help launch several of these hopefuls to greatness. Until then, we look forward to hearing what they have to say and can’t wait to award one of these eight companies the title of Founder Showcase Champion.

To get in on the action as well as hear talks from keynote speakers David Sacks (Founder & CEO of Yammer) and Justin Moore (Founder & CEO of Axcient), purchase your tickets today
