FundingPost proudly announces the start of its sixth annual Pitching Across America™ competition today. FundingPost, which has been introducing entrepreneurs to investors for over 8 years, established the competition in 2004. In the past 5 years more than 500 Venture Capital Funds and Angel Investors have participated as judges, voting on over 1,000 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 consist 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™."

"We are excited to be running Pitching Across America again this year! In these tough times we have been seeing an increase in entrepreneurs looking to raise capital, and despite the economic climate there are still plenty of investors actively seeking deals,” said Joe Rubin, Director, Fundingost. “Pitching Across America™ offers start-ups a great opportunity to get their business plan in front of the right people. The response from both entrepreneurs and the venture community regarding the value of the competition in past years has been tremendous. We look forward to another successful competition.”

The 2008 National Winner of Pitching Across America was iCopyright. iCopyright solves a problem that is common for online publishers: Allowing users to copy or share articles quickly and easily while protecting and tracking the publisher’s content on the World Wide Web. iCopyright is used by Advanstar, Associated Press, Boston Globe, Cygnus Business Media, Globe & Mail, Investors Business Daily, Penton Media, Reuters, SourceMedia and many other publishers. Since the announcement as Top Emerging Company, CEO, Mike O’Donnell, reported iCopyright has raised $1.2M.
