New Digital Video Web Service to Match Entrepreneurs and Investors Launched

A new groundbreaking internet service to wed entrepreneurs and potential investors is being launched today.

West Lafayette, IN, August 11, 2006 --( Using the latest web and video technology, the “digital video elevator pitch service” offers entrepreneurs a new high-tech approach to pitching their business ideas to investors over the internet.

Through the new service, created by Indiana based Business Plan Posting, entrepreneurs seeking venture capital can now upload a two minute digital video pitch to accompany their business plan.  Investors are then able to view these presentations through the Business Plan Posting website or download them directly to their PCs or iPods.

Tim O’Malley, President of Business Plan Posting, said:

“Attracting an investor’s attention is not only about having a great idea. You have to show them you have the drive it takes to succeed.”

“One of the most important tools an entrepreneur has to sell his business idea is the passion with which he or she describes it. Uploading a video elevator pitch is the ideal way to show this passion to sell the business plan and themselves to a potential investor.”
