Hey Harold- wanted to let you know that we launched the Amazing Risk Startup Challenge today, or at least, submissions are open for a contest that will actually be held with finalists during Global Entrepreneurship Week. I’d be remiss if I didn’t reach out personally on this one- the winning startup receives $5k in cash and $5k in in-kind services. Certainly no pressure- just wanted to make sure you knew about the opportunity.
Screw Pulp won the Amazing Risk Startup Challenge, taking home $10,000 in cash and in-kind services.
Care 2 Mange was crowned the winner of the “Everywhere Else Video contest”, taking home $10,000 in seed money.
Coyote Case won $25,000 coming in first place in the quick pitch contest.
AspirEDU was crowned best of the village and awarded $25,000.
What do all these contests have in common?
They were all pitch competitions!
How many have you participated in?
3 contests, however, pitched a total of 5 times, and already doing it like a pro.
This should make you turn into The Incredible Hulk …
Screw Pulp was one of the 4 startups that won at June’s 48 Hour Launch with Yadoog.
Your pitch advice to Ella aided in her winning $10,000 for Care 2 Manage.
Yeah, you wasn’t a mere attendee at the EverywhereElse.co conference and was pitch coach to Danielle for Pink Robin Avenue but y’all didn’t win the two pitch contests y’all was in. That’s $50,000 gone!
Worse, you shouldn’t have been a mere team member of a startup, but, the leader of one, either with Yadoog or Acquire For Pennies.
Your idea whoring has cost you who knows how much. In the least, $10,000.
Please commit to one idea and work as hard to keep it as you did in trying to come up with it.
Please , please, please, make up for this when these events come back around.
No one is a better pitchman than you!
The theme of Acquire For Pennies was action. Now, think of an idea you can commit to and act on. YOU!
