MinuteBids wins CrowdPitch Minneapolis by a landslide

by Mike Bollinger


Six startups gave their four-minute pitch at the second Crowdpitch Minneapolis event hosted yesterday by Rain Source Capital and FundingUniverse, but MinuteBids stole the show.

Crowdpitch is a competition event designed to bring together local tech entrepreneurs, mentors and service providers. Winners receive in-kind services valued at about $4,800.

Jon Coudron, co-founder of MinuteBids, made the pitch. After the event he said, “This was a great experience all around—not only did we get to field some great questions and receive feedback on our pitch, but we were able to walk away with some additional validation that we’ve got a good business.”
