Ultra Light Startups Investor Feedback Forum and Pitch Showdown


On Thursday, March 8th, 2012, Ultra Light Startups hosted its monthly Investor Feedback Forum and Pitch Showdown at Microsoft's NYC headquarters at 1290 Avenue of the Americas.  The Forum featured short presentations by nine (9) startups to an all-star panel of entrepreneurs and investors including First Round Capital's Phin Barnes, Paladin Capital Group's Bill Reinisch, ER Accelerator's Murat Aktihanoglu and Visual Revenue's Dennis Mortensen (billed as the ultimate bootstrapper).


The nine (9) presenting startups included Take the Interview's Danielle Weinblatt, Dealsurf's Damien Rottemberg, Favorly's Jonathan Daily, Sqoot's Mo Yehia, The Funday Genie's Joseph Foxton, LeadPlace's Ray Schmitz, Broodr's Jason Blanck, Buddha's David Montoya (fresh off his presentation the previous evening at Worldwide Investor Network) and USEED's Brian Sowards.

Judging by the evening's presentations, the daily deal and flash sales spaces continue to avoid market saturation and garner investor and entrepreneur interest.
