Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Brooklyn-based startup EatDrinkJobs was recently named one of ten finalists chosen to compete at the global conference and competition, PITCH NYC. PITCH NYC was launched this year by Women 2.0, a media company offering content, community and conferences for aspiring and current women innovators in technology.
The conference, which will be held on November 14th at the Manhattan Center, in New York, NY, is an all-day event featuring keynote addresses and panel discussions from prominent investors, CEOs and venture capitalists. A portion of the event will include a pitch competition featuring ten startups who will have a chance to present before a panel of 30 judges composed of investors, CEOs and venture capitalists. These startups were selected from 278 applicants from 24 countries. The theme of this year’s conference is the New Entrepreneur Economy.
EatDrinkJobs launched in the spring of 2012 and was founded by Julie Lerner, CEO. Lerner is a hospitality industry expert who built the company around a recognized need for the restaurant and bar community to have access to a site that provides a positive user experience for both the job candidate and employer. By requiring recommendations from past colleagues, EatDrinkJobs creates a vetted applicant pool for restaurant owners to choose from when hiring new staff. Lerner will be competing alongside nine other innovative entrepreneurs and CEOs of female-founded companies.
About EatDrinkJobs: EatDrinkJobs.com was founded in 2012 with the intention of offering a platform to set job seekers apart from the rest of the crowded bar and restaurant space. The website creates a clean, user-friendly space to find bar and restaurant candidates without sifting through excess, superfluous information. It also develops a superior experience for job seekers through connecting them to quality jobs, and for employers by allowing them to target for premium applicants.
