BookBrewer Wins CrowdPitch AwardPosted on September 24th, 2010 No comments
More good news from BookBrewer. Last night I was invited to present the concept and business model at a Denver event called CrowdPitch run by Funding Universe. Five companies were selected to give 4-minute presentations to a crowd of about 50 people, plus a panel of finance/investor types.
At the end of the pitches, attendees got to dole out Monopoly money to the companies they liked most. And they chose … BookBrewer!
We were totally surprised by this, as some of the other companies, like Sand-Off, had great businesses. We take it as yet another sign that average people identify with the concept of self-publishing eBooks.
Thanks to Edward Reynolds and Shane Van Cott for running such a fun, informative event. My only regret? I couldn’t take the monopoly money home to give to my kids.
