The prize money will be used by these companies to support their business development and growth.
“We had one of our strongest pool of candidates in many years,” stated David Titus, SDVG President. “Our team of 10 venture capital judges had a difficult time picking these three from the ten semi-finalists.”
The 10 semi-finalists for PitchFest 2011 were selected from the more than 70 nominee applications for their innovation, investor appeal and progress. The panel of judges who selected the semi-finalists is comprised of a group of San Diego’s leading entrepreneurs, professionals and investors. The ten semi-finalists were:
Biosilo Foods, dba Gamer Grub
iTel Companies, Inc.
Deal Current Network Inc
Many of these firms will be on display at the PitchFest dinner, which is open to the public. The finals will be held on Thursday evening, November 17, 2011 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla. More information is available at SDVG Pitchfest.
