Electronic Sports, a leading industry provider of competitive active gaming machines that make working out fun, announced today the company was selected in FundingPost's 6th Annual Pitch Across America Competition as one of the Top 50 Emerging Companies. The Pitch Across America competition not only showcases emerging companies to investors, but also helps venture capital and angel investors quickly identify worthwhile investment opportunities. Electronic Sports was one of only 50 companies selected by a panel of more than 130 venture capital and angel investors throughout the United States and the only company selected as a finalist in the Active Gaming and Fitness sectors.
"We're proud to be selected as one of the top 50 emerging companies in the United States", Electronic Sports CEO Joe Dean said. "This technology is the wave of the future.
