Verge's First Pitch Night of 2013

We're all getting stuff done in 2013. And I don't just mean watching our favorite BIG10 basketball teams kick butt on the basketball court. Our businesses are growing and we want to hook you up with tools build and scale this year.

This week's presenter lineup should fuel some great discussion. Here's what we have to look forward to:

  • MYTM8, a messaging system for connecting players, coaches, and parents. Co-Founder, Mike Coffey will present.
  • Brandtopia, a group-buying platform for cool promotional items. Founder, Kelly Elsner will present.
  • Frank Dale, who has led a number of software companies and recently announced that he's joining the DeveloperTown team as Entrepreneur-in-Residence and Venture Development Practice Lead.

Each pitch will hit your senses for 5 minutes each, followed by rapid-fire Q&A taking via the #vergestartups twitter hashtag. So, don't leave your inquisitive minds or your mad critical thinking skills at home. Bonus prizes for the best question asker.

You can also expect to have beer and pizza provided by our fantastic sponsors. Bring your appetite for startups and at least one big thing you're working on.

I'm excited to share with you some of our findings from we've received from the feedback forms (thanks again for all the great responses). Then, our team will commit to you some of the new things to expect from Verge.

Let's rock this year. See you Thursday!

    This was my first Verge event. I haven't been around such a large group of dedicated, like-minded people since grad school and I've never been around so many people willing to extend an honest helping hand. I'm instantly addicted.

    Another great event to kick off the new year. Matt's conversation with Frank Dale was very insightful and the presentations from Kelly and Mike were both very well done. Lots of familiar faces and a lot of new ones this month. This group keeps on growing for the better.
