The 10 finalists above will be making their presentations in-person in front of an expert judging panel later this month. We have recruited an A-list set of judges including Janice Roberts from Mayfield, Nokia Ventures, Nexit Ventures, Garage Ventures and others. Moderating our panel will be Joe Jasin from Helio. If you want to be considered for an invitation to attend the after-party on January 24th in Santa Clara, send me an eMail to mark 'at' rocketscience 'dot' com.
