Unique Opportunity For Founders to Speak at Major Industry Event in Los Angeles
Los Angeles, Calif. - Aug. 4, 2010 - TMC (News - Alert) and Embrase Business Consulting, the producers of StartupCamp at ITEXPO, today announced an open call for early stage companies to apply for speaking slots at StartupCamp.

StartupCamp: Communications Edition, taking place October 4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, is a unique forum for early-stage entrepreneurs to pitch their communications products or services to a discriminating audience of potential investors, media, bloggers and industry influencers. The event's fast-paced, "ready, set, pitch" format brings early-stage communications companies, developers, industry leaders and investors together to network and validate entrepreneurial pitches in real time.

Companies developing products or services that enable, or that are enabled by communications technologies such as voice, SMS and video will be considered. Participating companies should be less than three years old, and should be privately or angel-funded. Up to five startups will be selected to give high-level, five-minute 'pitch' presentations at the event.   

Startups seeking exposure and opportunity should apply online here, no later than September 1, 2010. Beyond the speaking slot, selected companies will also receive, at no cost:
  • A video shoot produced and distributed by TMC
  • Participation in marketing and promotional campaigns leading up to, and after the event
  • A spot in the StartupCamp Pavilion on the ITEXPO (News - Alert) exhibition floor.
 Among the success stories of companies selected to speak at last year's event in Miami was Close-Haul Communications, of Boston.
"Participating in StartupCamp was an invaluable experience for me as a first-time entrepreneur with a technical background," said Close-Haul Communications CEO Robin Coxe. "Attempting to convey the essence of Close-Haul Communications in five minutes, and speaking to a diverse, receptive audience served as excellent preparation for future interactions with prospective customers, partners, and investors."
