August 2012 IGNITE! San Francisco Event Spotlight

Congratulations to Chris Dyball from Groupiter for taking home first place at our August 9, Ignite! Fundraiser event at RocketSpace in San Francisco.

It was a great, energy-packed evening on Thursday, with ten companies eagerly waiting to pitch in front of our veteran panel of VC’s and angel investors. Ryan Stevens from Trace was awarded second place after making it out of the one minute elevator pitch round and Kirk Deininger from FromVerse came in only one point behind to take home third.

Groupiter will now get a meeting with Blumberg Capital, our sponsoring VC for the August Ignite! event. Best of luck to Chris and his team with the presentation!

Thank you to all who participated in on Thursday night. Ignite! would not be possible without our amazing guests, panelists, interns, and presenting companies. The next Silicon Valley event will be back at RocketSpace in September. Check back soon for the date and information about how to reserve your seat.
