We're excited about tonight's sold-out Juice Pitcher event put on by TheFunded.com and Vator.TV. This unique startup pitching and networking event democratizes access to exposure for promising early stage companies. 136 companies competed for the chance to present tonight to an audience of over 300 investors, founders, and members of the press. Aaron Patzer, of Mint.com, and Munjal Shah, of Like.com - two leading Silicon Valley CEOs - will be speaking at the event to educate and motivate the participating startups.
In fact, we're so excited about Juice Pitcher, we've extended our oDesk Challenge offer to the 10 finalists (who haven't yet been announced). These early-stage companies are under constant pressure to do more with less, and a great way to do that is enlist the help of teams of online contractors. Through participation in the oDesk Challenge, we're going to help them find the very best talent on oDesk, so they can begin reaping the benefits of having an online workteam on their side.
Our CEO, Gary Swart, and several members of our team will be attending tonight's event - if you'll be attending, we look forward to seeing you there!
