Win Startup Mentorship In TradeKing Pitch Fest

Garrett Wilkin, September 6th, 2012

TradeKingTradeKing, who provides financial services APIs like the TradeKing API, has partnered with the 1M/1M global virtual business incubator program to provide a pitch fest contest.  20 entrepreneurs who submit their applications by September 10th will be selected to give present their pitch to Silicon Valley strategy consultant Sramana Mitra & TradeKing CEO Dan Raju.  12 teams will be selected from the group to receive a year of mentorship and guidance.  The pitch fest will be broken into two presentation dates, October 4th and 10th.

1M/1M aims to create $1 Trillion in GDP growth by 2020 by helping one million entrepreneurs establish one million dollars in revenue.  The philosophy of the 1M/1M group is that by focusing on only those entrepreneurs who receive funding we, as a society, are missing out on the energy and creativity of millions of people.

If you’ve been thinking of bootstrapping your business idea, or have your sights set on a lifestyle business, this could be a great coaching opportunity.  All ideas need to be debated, refined, and questioned from different angles.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have an expert in your corner?

Folks,

The deadline for this contest is September 10, not September 14. Please note.

Also, 1M/1M works with entrepreneurs who are looking to build fundable business as well, and we also help you with the funding process: http://1m1m.sramanamitra.com/2012/01/24/can-1m1m-help-me-raise-money/
