If you haven't been following along, the Create Your Opportunity Contest that has been running at www.Pitch.co came to a close for entries and voting at 11:59pm on June 14th! With approximately 300 entries -- and lots of enthusiastic entrepreneurs -- it's been quite fun and exciting for all of us to watch unfold. But now comes to very best part! The judges have been studying the entries and are scoring each of the finalists. We should be ready to announce the winner by the end of the weekend or on Monday! Very exciting!
In the meanwhile, in addition to the top 30 vote getters, each judge had the option to "Save" one entrant for the pitch they liked best that wasn't in the top 30. This feature was intended to ensure that the contest wasn't just a popularity contest -- but that all great ideas, even ones submitted at the last minute, would have the opportunity to be judged in the finals.
So the judges have spoken -- and 7 of our 8 judges made the decision to "Save" an additional entrant.
So here's the list of entrants who were saved by our judges. They will now be considered, along with the 30 top vote getters, as "finalists" and will be judged on equal footing.
- Simpati.co: Mobile payments for All. Alvaro Bolivar
- 30 secs - Connecting Big Ideas With Investment Josh Clemence
- Internet-wide Wishlist! Roger Wong
- Dev.CO - Make your project come to life! Diane Thomas
- OfficeFlexed.co - Living Life Outside the Cube K. Hill
- TownGiftCards - Edward Armstrong
- Chinese Learning Channel - Let's Teach Kids Chinese Trever Owens
Congratulations to the top 30 vote getters -- and to our 7 "saved" entrants! You obviously have all worked hard to get your pitches to where they are now -- and you all deserve a round of applause for doing so! Nicely done!
Stay tuned over the coming days as the judges wrap up their scoring — and we tally all the scores to determine the winner and runner ups!
Good luck to all!
