Pitch Wins Best Presentation in San Francisco
With Puerto Rico now under their belt, Pitch Investors Live takes on San Francisco — the hub of blockchain activity as they win best presentation at CB Cryptocurrency Blockchain Conference.
“This past month, we hit new milestones”, said Co-founder Jonathan Foltz who attended the event with founder Matthew Lally, and team members Damien Coughlan (Community Manager), Lawrence Aponte (Growth Advisor), and Chris Knight (Sales Manager). “Not only did we win best presentation, but also had a lot more team members to show up.”
Coughlan, who used to deliver reports to Steve Jobs and Tim Cook at Apple, was excited to return to the Bay Area and observe the influx of blockchain activity. “There was a lot enthusiasm for crypto and for blockchain that applies to any product or industry”, said Coughlan.
The Pitch Investors Live team set up their booth at the Marriott Marquis in downtown San Francisco. “With over 2,000 attendees, we had over 400 people stop by our booth”, said Aponte who showcased the Pitch promo video. He was excited to meet not only entrepreneurs, but even taxi drivers who wanted to download the app. “In this industry, information moves fast, especially within Telegram groups, and opportunities are limitless.”
“Featured blockchain companies such as Crypterium expressed interest in partnering up with Pitch Investors Live”, said Aponte, who saw their large user base as benefit for the team. Aponte added that Crypterium Co-founder, Austin Kimm, expects for the adoption of cryptocurrencies contingent on its spendibility, and for the crypto economy to reach $10 trillion by 2026.
The team was pleased that representatives from the SEC Office of Compliance, Inspections and Examinations were present to discuss the standardization of utility. The Pitch team and their legal team from Greenspoon & Marder, have been working hard on legal structures to stay compliant in this new industry that is literally being shaped right in front of our eyes.
Overall, the founders were pleased to witness the increased demand for regulation, with mass adoption, bringing more users potential onto the platform.
Coughlan remarked, “Having spent 5 years in SF, the event was a welcoming refreshment. We see a new shift from traditional ways of funding to the new with more women present — 25% of attendees were women.” With the blockchain community strong and less formal, observed Coughlan, willingness for various companies to help one another was mind blowing. “It’s a great time to get involved in the blockchain industry as the barrier to entry is low.”
Aponte shared final conclusions. “There were other events happening at the same time, like the gaming conference that had 10 times more participants. 25,000 for GDC”, he said. “It was nice to see the spillover, with many people coming to the event and visiting our booth.”
Coughlan added the final thought. “There are many pioneers in this space, and we were inundated with inquiries. I wish I had more one-on-ones.”
