At Social Media Week Los Angeles, dozens of investors will listen intently as ten lucky startup creators pitch their ideas. To choose the startups that will be given this opportunity, Crowdfunder has launched CROWDFUNDxLA, a contest to pick out the best ideas from a crowd of entrepreneurs.
The top ten startups will present their pitches on September 25th. Crowdfunder is hosting a discussion with seed-stage investors on what they’re looking for in startup companies.
Crowdfunder’s main function is as a tool for connecting startups to the angel investors willing to fund them. Jumping off of this pledge, the contest is seeking both interesting startups hoping to make a name for themselves and investors willing to join Crowdfunder’s existing money people in hearing out the ultimate winners.
If either of these descriptions fit you or an LA-centric person you know, you can sign up for the CROWDFUNDxLA until September 13th at the Crowdfunder website.
