Jason Calacanis' most recent post to his email mailing list is particularly relevant to our audience. He's spoken with 200 companies in ten minute increments as they give their pitch to be a part of the upcoming TechCrunch50 conference. I agree with all of his thoughts below based on my own experience getting pitched from thousands of startups over the last three years. If you are pitching a company to the press, a conference, a potential employee or an investor, bookmark this. You'll be glad you did.
