Fall Color: Quick Pitch Arrives With Autumn Leaves

By Brad Graves Thursday, September 20, 2012

Quick Pitch time has returned.

Tech Coast Angels is again sponsoring its contest to see how compelling a pitch an entrepreneur can muster during 120 “short” seconds. The event is always a good show, and it’s open to the paying public.

This year’s Quick Pitch finals are set for 6 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall at Qualcomm Inc., 5775 Morehouse Drive. It will run until 9 p.m.

Ten entrepreneurs will have two minutes each to wow a panel of judges who have the authority to give their ventures early-stage funding.

Budding companies scheduled to pitch are: 5i Sciences with Richard Rose, CEO; Dealstruck with Ethan Senturia, co-founder and CEO; iGenomX with Keith Brown, founder; Insight Biotek Inc. with Larry Sharma, CEO; JammyPack Inc. with Jonnie Sax, founder and CEO; RockHouse Live with Zach Bair, president and founder; Stics Inc. with Karen Joiner-Congleton, founder and CEO; Uroboros Technologies with Peter Haberz, co-founder; Volunteer Forever with Steven Weddle, founder and CEO; and XTRLs International with Deanna Bebb, president.

Tech Coast Angels bills itself as the largest angel investor network in the United States, and the No.1 source of startup funding in Southern California.
