PerfectPitch, the national competition in which entrepreneurs pitch their ideas via a video submission and can end up presenting to the country's leading venture capitalists, debuted in 2009 with truly 2009 marketing techniques (including the opportunity for an entrepreneur to pitch based on who submitted the best Twitter pitch).
It's now back again and as with last year, entrepreneurs who are able to react quickly have an advantage. (The deadline is August 26th, which is two weeks away). Here's what you do:
- Submit your pitch ONLINE - a pitch may include a written description, photos, and video about your BUSINESS or IDEA
- Deadline for submissions is August 26th, 2010. Early applicants will receive helpful feedback and may make edits to improve their pitches
- Judges will review all pitches -- Top 3 win prizes and an invitation to pitch LIVE to investors and the audience of the PerfectBusiness Summit 2010

on entering, including the list of investors representing over $10 billion in assets who will be judging. (Did I mention that JumpStart's
own Ray Leach
is one of the judges, as is North Coast Angel's
Todd Federman and venture capitalists from leading investors such as DFJ and Google?)
