10 San Diego Startups to Compete at Region’s Top Pitch Competition


Ten tech startups will vie to impress a panel of six judges and hundreds of attendees at San Diego’s biggest pitch contest later this month. Three of the 10 slated to pitch at the Oct. 24 event will get a cut of $75,000 to advance their businesses.

Launched in 2006 by San Diego’s Tech Coast Angels, the annual John G. Watson Quick Pitch Competition this year is being co-hosted by San Diego Venture Group and Cox Business—the commercial division of Cox Communications, a subsidiary of Atlanta-based telecom giant Cox Enterprises—in an arrangement that has increased the pot of prize money to a historic high. As recently as 2015 only the top company received winnings.
