PitchForce is a monthly fundraising event for companies in software, social, mobile, big data, consumer web, finance/payments, clean tech, biotech or medtech sectors. Ten companies are chosen each month to participate, each has a demo table to showcase their company and five are selected to present to a panel of angels and VCs. The events are held at Runway in San Francisco.
This month's panel consisted of: Sophia Collier, Principal at Point Reyes Management and Band of Angels member, Bill Reichert, Managing Director at Garage Technology Ventures, Jeremy Banon, Analyst at Javelin Venture Partners, Mike McCormick, Principal at Rubicon Venture Capital and Eric Ferraro, Principal at Fathom Law.
