As part of EntrepreneurshipWeek USA, TechStars and FundingUniverse.com are presenting LivePitch in Boulder on March 2nd. Thanks to the kind folks at CU, the event will take place in the beautiful new Wolf Law Building from 9:00am to 10:30am.

The purpose of EntrepreneurshipWeek USA is to promote the importance of being entrepreneurial throughout the country. During The Week, events like this are happening all over the country.

Whether you’re an investor, a company who wants to pitch, a service provider, a student, or are just interested in the event, we hope you’ll register to attend. There is no charge, but advance registration is required. If your company would like to pitch there, please register your interest or contact me directly.

Attendees in the audience will receive $100 of play money that they will use to “invest” in their favorite company pitch. Both the audience favorite and the investor favorite will receive prizes from sponsors who include HRO, Silicon Valley Bank and ViaWest. The big picture is that this is a great networking opportunity for investors, service providers, and entrepreneurs. If you’d like to be a sponsor and donate prizes, please let me know.

Although TechStars is helping to put on the LivePitch event, these pitches will not be considered “applications” for this summer. This is completely independent of that process. If you want to apply to TechStars, you can do so until March 31.

I hope to see you at the LivePitch event. If you’re a TechStars applicant, please be sure to say hello.
