Reporting from the Fast Pitch Forum

Posted by Rob Lewis

This morning I'm live from the Washington Technology Industry Association's Fast Pitch Forum at the Bell Harbour Conference Center in Seattle.

Throughout the day twenty-three of Seattle's hottest technology companies will be showcasing their businesses and pitching to a sold-out Venture Capital heavy audience. 

After a welcome from WTIA President and CEO Ken Myer and a hat-tip to Techvibes as the media sponsor, a panel of veterans where introduced to discuss first hand stories of local merger & acquisition experiences. The lunch keynote address will be by Tim Draper, Founder & Managing Director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson.

After a blogging frenzy here on Techvibes throughout the day, the audience will be voting via SMS on which presenting company was "Best in Show".

Twitterati out there - hashtag #WTIATS.
