San Diego’s tech ecosystem is consistently highlighted by outsiders for how collaborative it is. Many organizations come together for the better of the community and QuickPitch is one great example of that.
Over the last few years, three different pitch events have banded together – SDVG’s PitchFest, TCA’s QuickPitch, and Cox Business’s GetStarted – to create one great event with a large prize purse of $75,000.
On October 24, 10 companies live pitched, and three prevailed in the John G. Watson QuickPitch – NeuraLace Medical , Yembo , and Lynx Bio . The night saw a standing-room-only crowd of over 700 attendees, which gave all finalistsincredible exposure , especially considering that 2017 finalists went on to raise $3 million from Tech Coast Angels alone. This year’s finalists certainlyshowcased the diversity in the different technologies being developed in San Diego, with representation from food tech, eSports, AI, pharma, cannabis, travel tech, consumer marketplace, gov tech, and SaaS, to name a few.
And they supposedly say San Diego is all bio… come at us!
