Accelerate-IT’s Investment Partner Network Launches the PitchDeck Series to Bring Together Local Tech Entrepreneurs and Investors

July 18th, 2013

The PitchDeck is a national series hosted by Accelerate IT’s Investor Partner Network, that brings technology entrepreneurs and investors together in an atmosphere that fosters education, discussion, networking and investment.

Accelerate-IT’s Investment Partner Network (IPN) will host the PitchDeck on Thursday, July 18 in La Jolla, California. The national series will bring promising local entrepreneurs and investors together for an interactive engagement where one pitch could instantaneously lead to funding. With the next generation of check writing, technology focused investors on hand, the PitchDeck series gives dynamic early stage startups the opportunity to raise financing. Slated to appear in Silicon Valley, Los Angeles and Boston later this year, the PitchDeck is one of the cornerstones of the IPN’s farm system program for technology startups. By vetting out quality deal flow for seed stage funding, the IPN provides startups with both the necessary guidance and network required for growth.

“I’m very excited to be kicking off the 2013 PitchDeck series at Accelerate-IT headquarters,” said Brent Granado, Managing Director, Investment Relations. “While San Diego is a region rich with biotech, there are plenty of other disruptive IT technologies being built that we wish to cultivate. Our larger objective is to assist the local information technology community and continue to develop those offerings.”

Sponsors for the event include Eddie V’s Prime Seafood, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati and Accelerate-IT Ventures. As the headline sponsor, Eddie V’s will be providing their masterfully prepared gourmet receptions paired with choice wines throughout the course of the evening.

The event is free for both entrepreneurs and investors. For more information and to register for the PitchDeck, La Jolla visit www.accelerateit.com/pitchdeck/. Additionally, to join in on the conversation leading up to and during the event, please visit Twitter and use the hashtag #PitchDeck.
