July 2012 IGNITE! Santa Clara Event Spotlight

On Thursday, July 12 Ignite Fundraisers was proud to host ten innovative companies at the Citrix Startup Accelerator in Santa Clara. After an exciting hour of networking, pitches, and demos, five companies were given the opportunity to present in front of an esteemed panel of silicon valley veterans.

A big congratulations to Spyra Games who emerged as the top company of the night, with 23 out of the possible 25 points from the judges. Spyra will now have the opportunity to pitch privately to LightSpeed Ventures. Yet, the competition on Thursday night was so great that the 2nd place company, MediCue has also earned a private presentation with K9 Ventures. Congratulations and best of luck to both companies with their future presentations!

Finally, there was a three-way tie for third place between three exciting tech companies. Engajer, Coringi, and CoreMobile all earned 19 points from the judges. Congratulations to all these companies for their outstanding accomplishments.
