Vote for Your Favorite Startup in Our Pitch Showcase Competition

We are pleased to announce the second round of our early-stage Startup Pitch Showcase competition.

Over the last few weeks, we asked our readers to nominate early-stage startups based in Southern California. We received over 100 nominations and have narrowed down the list to six startups. These companies are vying for a chance to advance to pitch at the finale, which will be broadcast live at the dot.LA Summit 2020, with special guest judges and a grand prize.

Now, we want your thoughts on the most promising, innovative, forward-thinking startups that can make a difference in users' everyday lives.

Of the three startups featured here, one will go on to pitch at our Startup Pitch Showcase finale later this month. Watch the videos below and let us know which it should be!

NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a novel form of ownership that could rejigger the financial landscape for creators. Even if the market for some of them proves frothy, this blockchain-based technology presents a unique way for artists to make money and engage their fans.
