    For those pitching here is a tip, get your hands on the book, "The Startup Pitch", written by Chris Lipp. Chris, aside from having personal experience pitching for his own startup, Chris teaches Stanford MBA's how to pitch their companies to investors. The book will elevate your pitch, I know because I use it.

  • Aoede/Lisa S.

    I just joined! Though I couldn't attend the event, I look forward to meeting many of you at a future one.. hopefully June-a little about me-I go by my artist name Aoede-I am a multi award-winning singer-songwriter, recording artist, performer and playwright! I do quirky folk pop and musical stories. I am adapting my latest musical into Children's theater: http://www.scctkids.com/auditio...­ I am working on my next musical story now and hoping this is a great place to form mutually beneficial relationships, brainstorm and bounce ideas about my unique entertainment proposal for musical audiobooks and adaptation to theater and film for tweens and young adults-a market not many artists are reaching! Thank you and look forward to connecting!

      So, recap the event for me? Who was the winner?

      April 21

  • Carlos M.

    I was watching ABC's Shark Tank, and I was watching this pitch by two founders who created a sort-of "search engine" for books. The best part of the pitch by ZoomBeam, is that when all the other investors are "out," Mark Cuban made a smart dialogue with founders trying to "communicate" and connect. It was so smart that I was like "Whoa! Awesome. I wish I had an investor like THAT." Someone who really understands what you're trying to do, and writes a check towards a company that seems to be doing beta testing before it's even "released," like a full-blown product/service. ONLY 85 subscribers/gifters. My company is doing double that; at [around] 400,000 visitors worldwide. The reason why I didn't play up the fact that I have around 400,000 uniques/visitors is because I wanted to hit the target on the bullseye - and I did. I didn't want to appear as arrogant, or whatever. If you want to see this episode; look for Shark Tank '529' (4/18/2014) on Hulu, Netflix or OnDemand.

    • Carlos M.

      Also, word of caution: Don't send your business plan BEFORE a pitch, or meeting. Your pitch, your meeting is a "teaser" to your business plan.

    Good luck to the startups that pitch in this particular month's showcase! Easter is coming, and I'm guessing it's going to be a theme in this showcase. :D

      You guys hit the bullseye with the branding of this company/brand - not only is google finding your site in europe (.eu domain is a dead giveaway, IMHO), as well as the actual "worldwide" domain (.com) I almost mistook the .eu domain as a different one, but it redirects to the .com - very nice job on that. Bullseye. Good job to the team.

    Did you know small farmers lose 14- to 35% if their revenue because they sell to middlemen rather than to retailers?

    2 · April 16

    • Alvaro R.

      My company, eHarvestHub, is developing a web and mobile app that helps farmers capture that 14 to 35% they lose. Our website allows small farmers to list their fresh produce online, aggregates volume across multiple small farmers; essentially giving retailers one location to shop from small farmers and meet their demand. Then, through our mobile farmers can lower their shipping cost by scheduling their deliveries directly with truckers while truckers increase their profits. Our mobile app does for our farmers and truckers what UBER does for it's passengers and drivers.
