As we’ve mentioned before, the Seattle startup industry is still booming with at least one new event every week. This Friday afternoon, up-and-coming entrepreneurs will get the opportunity to hone their idea-pitching skills. FundingUniverse.com will be giving about 15 local early stage founders 2 minutes to pitch their idea before a panel of experts (representatives from Atlas Recruiting, nPost.com, ActiveWords and others). They’ll be judged by the panel and also getting feedback from the larger audience. Check out the FundingUniverse.com event page for more details.

Submissions for the competetion itself are already closed, but you can still sign up to attend. If you plan on going, make sure you either RSVP over at the upcoming.org registration page, or send an email directly to Carolynn Duncan: cduncan@fundinguniverse.com. They only have room for 130 people and are already over half full, so make sure you register soon.
