Last Call for Capital: Connect SI Capital Forum Entry Closing Soon

March 25, 2009 is the deadline to enter this “capital drive.”  Action Sports Industry companies interested in raising capital are invited to participate.

The Forum, Sponsored by Sheppard Mullin and PricewaterhouseCoopers, will feature six of the most innovative products and/or companies in the sports and active lifestyle industry that have been chosen to present their business plan to, and network with, potential investors, partners and customers.

The nonprofit San Diego-based innovation accelerator will host its first CONNECT S.I. Capital Forum event in late spring 2009 with a luncheon keynote speaker (to be announced), company presentations to investors and a networking event immediately following. The event will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Downtown San Diego.

Applications are being accepted from companies in a range of areas (from action sports to traditional sports) and in various phases of development (from start-up to later-stage). All selected companies will be eligible to attend the luncheon and evening networking event. In addition, the finalists will receive exhibit space at the event.
