    We had a great audience of about 200 people. The investor panel was great and the networking overlooking Make Merritt and the great food from Royal Raspberry made it an exceptional event. The pitch presentations were excellent and Pax Pure came out a winner. ManosAccelerator was there in force.

    We are very pleased that three Oakland companies are going to present. These people worked hard to submit their applications and go through the interviews. Now Oakland needs to come out and support these Founders. This is a key step to building a broad based tech business community in Oakland.
