Budding entrepreneurs and newly-formed companies entering the Cambridge Wireless Discovering Start-Ups challenge will get the chance to pitch their ideas and business plans to a dream line-up of 25 of the world’s leading venture capitalists, angel investors and industry leaders. Cambridge Wireless has announced the latest line-up of judges that includes senior executives from Microsoft, RIM, Nokia, Vodafone Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Innovacom, Broadcom, Orange and ARM.

Supported by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) and now in its second year, the Discovering Start-Ups competition aims to find the very best in new cutting-edge technologies. In addition to getting a ‘dream ticket’ to present to a much sought after panel of investors and business experts, the winners will also get a kick-start with cash prizes and free business and consultancy services.

The full line-up of judges announced today is: Max Bautin, IQ Capital Partners; Bruce Beckloff, ARM; Ivan Boyd, BTID Martlesham; Carson Bradbury, European Microelectronics Academy; Nigel Brown, Microlease; Alex Butler, Microsoft Research; Jonathan Coker, MMC Ventures; Clennell Collingwood, TTP Ventures; Bruno Dizengremel, Innovacom ( the VC part of Orange); Steven Edwards, Rohde and Schwarz; Simon Jones, Analysys Mason; Dr. Satoshi Kabasawa, Panasonic; Gerry Kelliher, RIM; Libby Kinsey, NESTA; Francois-Xavier Lecarpentier, Orange FT Group; David Leftley, Vodafone Ventures Europe; Andrew Matthews, Nokia; Paul May, Imperial Innovations; Struan McDougal, Cambridge Capital Group; Amy Mokady, Cambridge Business Angels; and Dr. Chris Winter, New Venture Partners, Frederic Rombaut, MD of Qualcomm Ventures and Lakh Jemmet of Alcatel-Lucent.

“We are delighted that the investment community and wireless industry is giving Discovering Start-Ups 2011 such great support that reflects the quality of last year’s entrants and our reputation for showcasing leading-edge research and innovation,” said Soraya Jones, CEO at Cambridge Wireless, the leading independent wireless business and technology community. “It would be virtually impossible for most start-up companies to get in front of such an impressive line-up of investors and experts. As a direct result of last year’s competition, one of the winners, Cambridge Temperature Concepts (CTC), went on to represent Europe in the finals of the Qualcomm Ventures’ QPrize™ and picked up a prize of 100,000 euros in venture financing.”

Discovering Start-Ups 2011 is open to start-ups and early-stage companies as well as design groups in larger companies looking to exploit new technologies and students or academics in education.
