FundingPost proudly announced today the winning companies from its fifth annual Pitching Across America™ competition.

FundingPost, which has been introducing entrepreneurs to investors for over 7 years, established the competition in which 100 Venture Capital Funds and Angel Investors participated as judges, voting on 300 business summaries from emerging companies nationwide. The largest Venture Capital competition ever organized, this year’s Pitching Across America™ was sponsored by Wolf Block.

“We are pleased to announce the results of this year’s competition! It’s a tough month for financial news, but the venture capital industry is still strong, and the Investors are still looking for quality companies to Invest in,” said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. “I’m sure that we will hear about several capital-raising success stories from this year’s winners, as we have in all of the past years’ Pitching Across America competitions!”

The emerging companies were 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.”

"I found Pitching Across America to be a great source of finding new companies to review,” said Jung Yun, President of Global Media Fund. “I was able to connect with 7 new innovative companies for our fund."

"I was happy to be a judge in the 2008 Pitching Across America competition!,” said Richard Irving, Managing Partner at Pond Venture Partners. “FundingPost has provided Investors a great way to read company summaries from across the country, and entrepreneurs the opportunity to get in front of a lot of Venture Funds they wouldn't normally have access to."
