Original story: The Cal Poly Small Business Development Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Softec, the Economic Vitality Corporation and the Business & Entrepreneurship Center at Cuesta College are asking all local startups to apply for their third annual TechPitch competition.

To qualify, applicants must be a seed or early-stage startup — defined as having less than $2 million in investment and no more than $1 million in annual revenue, according to a news release.

Once selected, eight qualified applicants will pitch their technology-related business ideas to a panel of industry experts Oct. 23 at an event in the Alex Madonna Expo Center.
