Strata Launch Pad

Call closed 11:59pm 08/22/2011 EDT.

Judges: Alistair Croll (Year One Labs), Gamiel Gran (Sierra Ventures), Roger Ehrenberg (IA Ventures)

This year’s Strata Summit will include a Launch Pad for early-stage companies to get on stage and tell the world what they’re up to. We’re accepting applications for new ventures to pitch, and our panel of judges—investors, angels, and startup accelerators—will select five of the most promising. Then, throughout the day, we’ll hear their stories, and let our panel pick their favorite.
