Please forward as appropriate to your respective networks.  Sorry for the late notice on this everyone, but I just found out today that a company my good friend Ean Jackson has just started with, Genesis Exchange, is looking for more good candidate companies to present their elevator pitches to a group of private equity investors.

Here is the blurb borrowed from CanadaIT.com:

Vancouver, BC, October 3, 2005 – Vancouver-based private equity network Genesis Exchange Corp. today announced The Genesis Search, a search for Canada’s hottest privately held companies.

The Genesis Search gives Presenters 10 minutes to pitch their business to a panel of Genesis Search judges. Finalists from this round will advance to closed door, one-on-one meetings with the Genesis investor network. The Genesis Search is also being taped as a television pilot.
