San Diego Venture Group Invites Entrepreneurs to Compete for Funding
Entrepreneurs compete for $35,000.00 in funding through the PitchFest program; a panel decides the semi-finalists who are then awarded funding by audience votes at the December PitchFest event.
Pitchfest applicants will have their business plans reviewed by judges comprised of a group of San Diego’s leading entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, professionals and investors.
“We usually receive about one hundred applications,”
Three finalists will be chosen by the judges based upon their innovation, investor appeal and progress. Each of the three semi-finalists will then present their business plan to the hundreds of audience members at the PitchFest 2012 event in December. Audience members then cast their votes to decide how much money each of the semi-finalists receives.
