2009 Fall Final Pitch Event

On Friday, December 4, 2009, InSITE Fellows, Fall 2009 Companies, representatives from 10 venture funds and other guests gathered at the offices of Cooley Godward and Kronish for InSITE’s 2009 Fall Final Pitch Event.

InSITE’s Fall 2009 companies presenting were:

Krossover Intelligence
Rightframe
[me] & goji
Payperks

A distinguished panel of senior venture capitalists and entrepreneurs provided invaluable feedback on each pitch. These included:
– Bob Greene / Co-Founder and Partner, Contour Venture Partners
– Thomas Lehrman / Founder and CEO, Boliven
– Charlie O’Donnell / Entrepreneur in Residence, First Round Capital

Charlie O’Donnell said of the pitches, “I was amazed by the quality of companies at InSITE’s Pitch Event. I don’t remember ever being at an event like this where I could feasibly see every single company be funded.”

Thomas Lehrman, who returned to join the Final Pitch panel for a second semester in the row, noted that “InSITE really took the time to find top notch companies to present to us. I was truly impressed by all of the presentations during the pitch event.”

InSITE is tremendously thankful to these sponsors for supporting us through another outstanding semester:
