CROWDSTART LA: Crowdsourced Startup Contest

10 Startups from Crowdfunder To Pitch The LA Startup Community & Compete For $25,000 in Funding

On May 22nd we opened up Crowdfunder to the public and launched the first crowdsourced startup contest, CROWDSTART LA.

Just a few weeks after launching, over 600 companies have signed up to compete by creating a Company Profile on crowdfunder. The crowd has spoken and selected the startup finalists who will compete in the live pitch event portion of the contest.

Today it’s our pleasure to announce the 10 top companies who will be presenting on July 10th to the community. 5 of these companies received the most votes from the crowd, while the other 5 are the Judge selections.

RSVP to CROWDSTART LA and join many of the top founders, Angels, Incubators and VCs in LA Startup Community as these top 10 companies compete for $25,000 in funding.

And with no further ado… here are the finalists:

The Future of Community & Collaborative Funding For Businesses

At crowdfunder, we believe that community and collaboration are powerful catalysts that help shape and guide the success of promising early stage companies and founders.

One of our goals with the CROWDSTART LA contest was to let the community decide which were the best companies that deserve a shot in the spotlight and a chance to win $25,000 in funding.

Part of our vision for business crowdfunding is to bring collaborative (crowd) intelligence to the process of vetting, supporting, and funding a company.

We’re excited about what the future looks like given the quality of founders and investors who are joining the Crowdfunder community and creating the future of crowdfunding for businesses.

Please be a part of our community… and take the time to Comment and Rate and Support companies. Check Out Companies
