Participants in the Fast Pitch could make it to the Piranha Pool! The winner gets a free pass to pitch the Inland Empire Tech Coast Angels.

As a reminder, don’t forget to attend “Startup IE: I Have An Idea, Now What?” On Thursday, September 20th, we'll be having a special panel of three founders of successful companies here in the Inland Empire. For those of you who haven't had a chance to make it out to a meet up, this is the one to go to.
