The Big Success Business Pitch Contest is the ultimate business pitch competition for entrepreneurs and small business owners. The contest is created to encourage entrepreneurs to broadcast their business, passion and ideas on the internet (Facebook), in person (March 26) and on traditional media (CBS 5)!

This live event will be very similar to American Idol, except that the contestants will be entrepreneurs and instead of singing, it will be business pitches.

Who are our judges?
* Kevin Hartz - CEO of Eventbrite & Limited Partner of Sequoia Capital
* Amy Errett - Partner of Maveron, Former CEO of Olivia.com Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2006
* Mark O'leary- Regional Vice President of Comcast Business Class

Here is how it works...

Entrepreneurs who join this contest expose their business to the Facebook community before quarterly deadlines. Next deadline: March 20, 2009 12:00 a.m.

Get Votes
Share your Big Success pitch with friends and anyone who needs to know about your business.

How to Win?
The top three voted entrepreneurs will be selected to pitch and compete to be a quarterly winner in front of a live audience and a panel of judges consisting of seasoned entrepreneurs/potential investors. The quarterly winner will be determined by the panel of judges and receive a prize of being featured on San Francisco TV station CBS5 for 5 minutes!

And what else - the Grand Prize...
Each quarterly winner also becomes one of the finalists for the Big Success Finale which will take place on BizTechDay, the annual technology day for small business which will be held on October 22-23 this year in San Francisco. The 2009 Big Success Champion will receive a 30-minute exclusive interview on CBS5 and win a free trip to Miami.
