About this contest:
The SFentrepreneur Challenge is the ultimate business pitch competition for entrepreneurs in the San Francisco Bay Area. The challenge is created to encourage entrepreneurs to broadcast their business, passion and ideas on the internet and in person.
Entrepreneurs can enter the contest by simply creating an online profile on SFentrepreneur.com. The SFentrepreneur members can then vote for their favorite entrepreneurs online before June 1st, 2008. The 5 top voted entrepreneurs will be selected to pitch and compete in front of a live audience and a panel of judges consisting of seasoned entrepreneurs/angel investors on June 4th, 2008. The live event will be very similar to American Idol, except that the contestants will be entrepreneurs.
The winning entrepreneur will receive a grand prize of being featured by American Express Open as the “June 2008 Spotlight Entrepreneur” in American Express’ “Ideas for Growing a Business” newsletter which is sent to over 16,000 entrepreneurs across the country.
