PeopleConnect is excited to announce their next event PitchForce, taking place Thursday, January 10, 2013, from 5 PM-8:30 PM at RocketSpace (181 Fremont Street, SF, CA 94105). PitchForce is a part of a series of monthly fund raising events for high tech, software, clean tech, medical device, biotech or medical diagnostic companies. Each month ten companies are chosen to participate in PitchForce. Presenting companies will each have a demo table and have the opportunity to meet and network with angels, VCs and guests during the first hour. Attendees will then vote for their favorite company and the top five will get to present to a distinguished panel of VCs. The panel then chooses who they feel is the most promising startup. The winner will get a meeting with our Sponsoring Venture Capitalist, Emergence Capital Partners for a full Pitch Session to the Emergence VC team.
Here are the companies that have been accepted thus far to pitch.
