FundingPost proudly announced the start of its second annual Pitching Across America™ competition, with WolfBlock as the premier sponsor and PRNewswire as the media sponsor of the event. FundingPost, which has been introducing entrepreneurs to investors for over 4 years, established the competition last year in which 140 Venture Capital Funds and Angel Investors participated as judges, voting on 400 business summaries from emerging companies nationwide. It was the largest Venture Capital competition ever organized. The Pitching Across America competition is significant because it helps Venture Capital and Angel Investors quickly identify worthwhile investment opportunities. In addition, the competition helps provide entrepreneurs with useful feedback about the quality and professionalism of their pitch to investors. FundingPost expects to duplicate its success from last year’s Pitching Across America event again this year.
The emerging companies will be evaluated on a scale of 1 to 10. Judging criteria consisted of several key points including: the professionalism of the written summary, current stage of development (customers, revenue), competitive advantage and need in the marketplace, feasibility for success, and whether the company is "VentureWorthy™."

Over 100 Venture Capitalist and Angel investors have signed on as judges of the event. Participating Venture Funds include:
- 3i

"We are thrilled to be running Pitching Across America again this year. The response and the level of interest from both the Venture and Angel community and the entrepreneurs who participated in Pitching Across America™ last year was tremendous," said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost, "Both the investors and entrepreneurs really saw the value in the competition. We expect to find another 50 compelling opportunities this year.”

Pitching Across America also received tremendous accolades from its investors judges last year. "FundingPost's latest Pitching Across America event was stellar," said Bill Funcannon, Partner, OVP Venture Partners. "As a judge representing the top-tier fund in the Pacific Northwest, I was impressed by the 50 companies selected from a list of more than 400 entries. The start-ups chosen for the final round represented real balance of companies between earlier- and later- stage investing. There is a natural mix of winners from industry segments based on market opportunities, and a balance between risk and reward for venture capitalists and entrepreneurs alike."
