New York, NY (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
InDigital Marketing, the real money doesn't come from VCs, it comes from marketing budgets and CMOs. So the eMarketing Association -- the world’s largest international association of emarketing professionals -- decided to follow the money.
In SHARK FIGHT — an exciting event happening on January 23, 2014, from 6 to 9 PM at the Bloomberg Building (731 Lexington Avenue) — Venture Capitalists will pitch a seasoned, skeptical panel of judges from the major brands on behalf of their "hot" startups. This time the Sharks are in the hot seat, defending their investments alongside the founders.
In Round 2 (WHALE HUNT), the VCs will step aside, and be replaced on the grill by founders of social media startups. Can these social media startups get the VIP judges excited about their ventures? Things can get very hot in three minutes.
The SHARK FIGHT's tough panel of VIP celebrity judges includes:
Brad Jakeman. President, Global Beverages Group, PepsiCo
Babs Rangaiah, Vice President, Global Media Innovation & Ventures, Unilever
Linda Gharib, SVP, Digital Marketing, Citigroup
Dave Lokes, CMO, Footlocker.com/Eastbay
Jeff Hayzlett, Bloomberg Television host
