BreezyPrint takes top prize at Founder Showcase

Posted on Mon, Oct 25, 2010

Last Thursday night I had the honor of pitching BreezyPrint at the fifth Founder Showcase, an quarterly event that gathers 300 investors, tech CEOs and early stage companies in Silicon Valley to network, hear keynote talks by geniuses like Elon Musk and Mike Maples, and to vote on the most promising startup out of the ten presenting.

Voting is done in two rounds -- five companies present, the audience votes on their favorite, five more present and the audience votes again, and then the top vote getter from each round answers questions from a panel of five judges, who vote on which of the two finalists will take home the grand prize.

When it came time to vote, the audience response was overwhelming.  BreezyPrint reeled in over 7 times the number of votes as the runner up, and four out of five judges voted for us in the final panel.

It was a fantastic night, we won an excellent prize package and a bit of recognition, and made a number of new friends.  Best of all, the exposure will help us in fundraising and hiring efforts, so we will be able to continue to improve the BreezyPrint experience for all of you.

For those interested, a video of the pitch follows below.  We wouldn't have won if it weren't for the trust and support of our users and friends, so to everyone: thanks!
