Angel investment crowfunding platform FundingFuel, founded by Pedro Moore of Newark, made the Top 10 in Black Enterprise’s “Elevator Pitch” competition last spring. This fall, he’s going for it all: FundingFuel has been selected into the final rounds of the Prudential TCX Pitch Competition, to be held this October at the 2018 Black Enterprise TechConneXt Summit in San Francisco.

FundingFuel was founded in 2017 by Moore, who cofounded Start It Up Delaware. Check out Moore’s two-minute pitch for FundingFuel here:

Six semi-finalists, including Moore, were invited to TechConneXt Summit, where they will pitch for a chance to win $10,000 and receive an interview for candidacy for a Techstars accelerator.
