Now announced, the 5 winners have been given the chance to present their business investment opportunity in a live 1-hour online GoToMeeting session to the panel of investors (judges). Itâ€™s up to them to put their best foot forward to gain the investorsâ€™ serious consideration. The GoToMeeting presentation will allow for interaction with the investors in real-time and enables the winners to convey all of the critical information about their business opportunity that would be required to develop serious interest on the part of the investors.
Additionally, each of those Top 5 Winners have been awarded a Toshiba Satellite Pro S300 laptop to enable them to have the power, reliability and mobility every entrepreneur deserves and demands in a laptop computer.
Even if the Top 5 donâ€™t receive investments, they certainly are in a great environment to gain experience and knowledge about how to be effective in trying to raise money for a business.
In these tough times, weâ€™re doing our best to increase your odds of raising financing for your business. We hope youâ€™ve enjoyed being part of the 2009 StartupNation Elevator Pitch Contest in which you learn how to give a great pitch, gain exposure for your business, and, if selected as a winner, get an opportunity to present your business to real investors.
