The Founder Showcase is taking applications now for a chance to make your pitch onstage at its event, to be held June 15 in San Francisco. Any seed or early-stage company less than two years old and with less than $500,000 in funding is invited to apply.
The Founder Showcase is held quarterly, bringing together investors, founders, and members of the press and includes keynote addresses as well as the pitch competition. The keynote for the June event is still TBA, but in the past this person has joined a panel of investor who provide critical feedback to the startups who are pitching. The Grand Prize Winner walks away with cash and free services, but the exposure itself has proven valuable to participants.
The June event will be the largest one to date, with over 400 in attendance. The Founder Showcase has sold out the last four times, and tickets for the event are on sale (beginning at $50). ReadWriteWeb readers get 15% off using the discount code RWW.
