December 16, 2013

Happy Holidays Startup Folks!

First off, we would like to congratulate all the Blue Startups and Energy Excelerator teams who pitched at the the Demo Day during the VC Summit. For those who missed it, check out the VC Summit Highlights!

We’d also like to remind everyone of our next big events in the community:
– Wetware Wednesday with the Holiday Science & Tech Fair and Startup Paradise
– VC Talk Story

Lastly, Shark Tank is casting for Season 6 and are looking for people who are interested! Here’s an excerpt they sent us:

Shark Tank, the critically acclaimed, business-themed show is continuing the search for the best Entrepreneurs with the best businesses and products that America has to offer. The Emmy-nominated show features The Sharks – tough, self-made, millionaire/billionaires who give budding entrepreneurs a chance to make their dreams come true and become successful — and possibly wealthy — business people.

If youʼve got a great product or business and need an investment to propel you 
forward, Shark Tank is a unique opportunity to raise capital. Whether an infusion of cash will allow you to fulfill orders or if youʼre seeking your first round of investment, this is the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs to get the money they need from the Sharks.

For more information on the casting process please visit ABC.com.

With that, we wish everyone a very Happy Holidays!
