FundingPost proudly announced the start of its fourth annual Pitching Across America™ competition today. FundingPost, which has been introducing entrepreneurs to investors for over 6 years, established the competition in 2004. In the past three years more than 250 Venture Capital Funds and Angel Investors have participated as judges, voting on over 1000 business summaries from emerging companies nationwide, They have been the largest Venture Capital competitions ever organized. The Pitching Across America competition not only showcases emerging companies to investors, but helps Venture Capital and Angel Investors quickly identify worthwhile investment opportunities. Many of the judges request additional information and meetings with the participating companies. FundingPost expects to duplicate its success from previous Pitching Across America events again this year.
The emerging companies’ executive summaries will be evaluated on a scale of 1 to 10. Judging criteria consisted of several key points including: the professionalism of the written summary, current stage of development (customers, revenue), competitive advantage and need in the marketplace, feasibility for success, and whether the company is "VentureWorthy™."

The level of interest from both the Venture and Angel community and the entrepreneurs who participated in Pitching Across America™ in previous years has been tremendous," said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost, "Everyone who participates really sees the value in the competition. We expect to find another 50 compelling companies this year."
