The energy was high when we hosted Kevin Harrington at our event in San Francisco. We’re excited to announce we’re doing it all over again in New York City with a twist.
Kevin Harrington is hitting the concrete jungle with EFactor to bring you Pitch it in Person. We’re organizing an idea slam and giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their idea for a chance to win $2,500 in startup cash.
Come network, make new connections and listen to new innovative ideas. Meet the masterminds behind the ideas and partake in the unique opportunity to hear from serial entrepreneur and Shark Tank panelist.
To join the tank, register for the event and send in your executive summary to the brand ambassador Yanna Sigenlaub for review. Only 5 entrepreneurs will be selected. Deadline is October 3rd - so submit your summary today! Please send your executive summary to Yanna@EFactor.com.

We dedicate a special toast to those who sponsored our event!
Competition was stiff as EFactor members, friends, sponsors and affiliates networked and talked product pitches at Alley NYC last Tuesday night (Oct. 8).
With approximately 30 executive summary submissions to choose from, EFactor staff had a hard time selecting just five to pitch to a panel of investors, including Shark Tank panelist Kevin Harrington. At stake, $2500 in startup cash.
In the end it was down to five entrepreneurs, Aaron Price owner of LiveCube, Sohin Shah creator of iFunding, Brad Benn mastermind behind Sprezzat, Ashlene Shand creator of Lacquerous, and Chris Rooney pioneer of Get Health.
Each entrepreneur tried their hand at presenting while the crowd mingled and watched in suspense, talking amongst themselves about which pitch would win the prize.
In the end only one could win and the panel, led by Kevin Harrington decided that Aaron Price of LiveCube delivered the best pitch.
Not only did Aaron Price walk away with the cash prize, but he walked away with something even more valuable, new investor relations created with the help of EFactor, and just as he is gearing up for his next round of success.
Fun was had by all at Pitch it in Person, New York City and we’re ecstatic to report this has been our best event to date.
We’d like to dedicate a special THANK YOU to our generous sponsors who made this event a great success: #Heineken #SexyPop #Sungard #Frava #Uber #Zico #EllenoffGrossman&Schole, you ROCK!
