There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

Connect S.I. extends its deadline for funding applications

CONNECT Sports Innovators, the San Diego venture capital group, extended its deadline to Friday, Nov. 13, for action sports companies to apply to make a pitch for funding at its next Capital Forum.

Like the first forum in June, this session will put six companies in a room with a group of investors. The companies make 20-minute presentations, then field questions from the audience.

CONNECT is a non-profit "innovation accelerator" that brings together young companies in several industries with venture capital investors.

For its Sports Innovators forum, eligible companies are in a range of sports areas, including action sports. The companies can be in several stages of development, from start-up to later-stage funding. The companies must be based in Southern California, from Santa Barbara south.

The presenting companies will receive 6-8 weeks of coaching from a CONNECT entrepreneur in residence to prepare for the presentation.

Its next forum is Feb. 2, 2010, the day before the next ASR show.
