California Capital Summit
Fast Pitch Meeting: Early-Stage Companies
Our May 17 meeting will feature "Fast Pitch" presentations by entrepreneurs leading early-stage companies in a variety of industries.
The companies will include:
Nulu.com, which offers online lessons in reading and speaking English and Spanish. Co-founder and CEO Eitan Geft says the company, which launched as a free service, is about to transition to a subscription-based model.
AutoPark-It wants to solve the problem of too many cars looking for too few parking spaces. It aims to build multi-floor parking garages that use automated technology rather than attendants to shuttle cars in and out. CEO Christopher Alan says that will get more cars into less space, and retrieves them faster.
Peter Friis, CEO and Co-Founder of Essio, wants to make your morning shower more enjoyable and maybe healthier. Now getting his MBA at UCLA after starting his career at Amazon.com, he launched Essio to market a showerhead attachment that releases organic aromatherapy oils into the stream of water.
Each of the presenters will talk about the formation of their ventures, their growth plans, the competition they face, and their funding needs.
Attendees will be asked to critique the business plans, strategies and marketing approaches of the CEOs, and to appraise their likely success at raising the capital they need and of generating profits.

We are focused on serving the needs of the continuum of capital from debt through equity. As a result, our monthly meetings are packed with lenders and equity players – from hard money through mezzanine and senior debt, angel investors, venture capital, large private equity and everything in between. Many CCS attendees are professionals who offer the resources these investors need to get their deals done.
CCS is also open to entrepreneurs and business executives who are looking for capital, and to those who are looking for businesses to acquire. It’s a great mix!
Another Benefit: You can submit a “Deal with a Story” that we’ll review. Once it is approved, we’ll present it to attendees, in PowerPoint, and give you 10 to 15 minutes to discuss it and let us know how you can add value.
