StartupNation the online entrepreneurial community and content company, announced today that Phil Camillo of PixLit is the winner of its recent, nationally-broadcast Elevator Pitch Contest. StartupNation designed the contest to educate entrepreneurs and help them in creating a 60-second business-plan pitch for potential investors.

Camillo competed with 14 other elevator pitchers on StartupNation's nationally-syndicated radio program. The StartupNation online community voted and ultimately chose three finalists. After delivering his pitch once in the preliminary round, Camillo refined it and came back on the air to face the Sloan brothers and angel investor Frank Hennessey in the final round.

Runner-up Lynne Sandler of "A Sound Match" presented her idea for an online dating website that matches people based on their taste in music. And runner-up Jennifer Jones discussed her vision of a community center that combines assisted living and a learning facility.

Both Sandler and Jones presented top-notch elevator pitches. But in the end, Camillo won the unanimous favor of all three judges by pitching his company, PixLit, a virtual school that sells video lessons and special services to parents. Camillo was awarded the grand prize of "The Ultimate Hookup." He will be flown to the StartupNation office for in-person coaching and "hooked up" with three potential investors.

"We give kids a fun learning experience complete with online videos and interactive games while supporting parents in virtual communities," states Camillo. "And best of all, parents can individualize learning for each child and track progress online. All our lessons are created by content experts meeting national education standards, and we offer special member services like our live, online 24/7 tutoring. With the Ultimate Hook-Up prize, we hope to fully realize the vision contained within our name - to help parents improve their children's literacy through the visual media."
