Looking for funding for your small business startup? ShowStoppers®, the New York Angels and UP Global announced they are partnering again with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® to help entrepreneurs and startups raise early seed capital — by producing the second annual official “pitch” event for startup companies exhibiting in the Eureka Park TechZone at the 2014 International CES®, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, scheduled for January 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

ShowStoppers LaunchIt,” the official Eureka Park pitch event at the 2014 CES, is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 6, 2014, 1:15 to 3:15 p.m. during the 2014 CES Press Day at Mandalay Bay, one day before the CES show floor opens.

ShowStoppers LaunchIt is a curated pitch event for 16 companies selected from the more than 200 young, innovative, transformative and entrepreneurial startups that exhibit in Eureka Park, a TechZone within CES where retailers, venture capitalists, manufacturers and others will find entrepreneurs launching new products, services, apps and ideas.

Companies that exhibit inside Eureka Park are invited to apply to pitch for funding at ShowStoppers LaunchIt: http:///www.launchit.showstoppers.com.

There is no application fee, and there is no fee charged to companies that are selected to pitch.

A panel of experienced Angel investors and venture capitalists organized by the New York Angels will pre-screen the companies applying, then select the best to present. One of the largest and oldest angel groups, the New York Angels, http://www.newyorkangels.com, is a member-led organization committed to finding, funding and mentoring great young companies from pitch through a successful exit. Supporting members of the network include Gust, the world-wide official fund raising deal management platform for angel investing; Vegas Valley Angels, Vegas Tech, and LaunchIt, a ShowStoppers partner.
