RE: [Pitch-to-Developers] Need a couple more presenters!

But doesn't that defeat the purpose of the pitch process?  I was going on the assumption that the idea behind the Pitch-to-developers meetings was for startups to convince developers that their projects were worth the risk.  Otherwise, it's a job fair, which has its own value, but it's a fundamentally different thing, in my opinion.

Just a thought,

If a couple of slots were open for established companies hiring contractors or for full time positions, it may increase interest from developers.  More developers means more value and interest from the entrepreneurial community.  The company I work for is always looking for top talent, either contract or full time.
