On Thursday evening, more than 125 people packed into our new space to hear five brave entrepreneurs pitch their business. Talk about buzz – the room hummed with anticipation, energy and excitement. Attending last evening, and witnessing the tremendous growth this event has had in such a short amount of time, really instills confidence that there are opportunities in this economy – that hard times don’t stop tough people.
Funding Universe hosts CrowdPitch events every several weeks all over the United States. The event has many goals – to allow startups to receive quality feedback on their ventures, to award business services to get the winner’s idea up and running, and to connect potential investors with a promising venture. For audience members, CrowdPitch is a chance to network, learn and hopefully be inspired to pursue your own passions.
To winning pitch was delivered by Scottsdale Medical Device, who have designed a product that will assisting in draining blood during cardiac surgeries.
