IGNITE! San Francisco is changing its name to PitchForce

Change is good, and we are embracing the chance to give IGNITE! a fresh coat of paint with its new name PitchForce. Not to worry, it will still be the same great event with fabulous startups and a great panel, along with the opportunity to network with some influential people in the startup community. Oh, and don’t forget the free food and drinks!

We are already beginning the selection process for our next PitchForce event on Thursday, November 8th. Please apply as soon as possible as we are selecting companies on a rolling basis. Just complete the online application and we will let you know in the coming weeks if you accepted or not. Best of luck!

October 2012 IGNITE! San Francisco Event Spotlight

Last night the theme was “ties” as we had two companies tie for third and two for first place! We would like to extend a big congrats to Nephosity and PushToTest who both tied for first place. Nephosity will now have the honor of pitching to our sponsoring VC group, Claremont Creek Ventures, while PushToTest will get to pitch to Lightspeed Venture Partners. Finally, let’s hear it for CheckInOn.Me and LocalOn who both took home third place last night at our monthly IGNITE! Fundraiser event at RocketSpace in San Francisco.

We so enjoyed hosting ten great companies last night and look forward to our next IGNITE! event taking place on Thursday, November 8. A big thank you to all who help make this event possible, including our wonderful panelists, sponsors, presenters and of course, you, our guests!

See you in November!
