After a month of deliberations, we’re proud to announce the Startup 2010 Top 10!These 10 emerging online companies have survived three rounds of scrutiny from our panel of VC judges and been selected from a pool of more than 150 applicants to make their pitches live at our conference on May 20.
We thank all the companies who participated, and we invite all those that did not make the finals to meet with General Catalyst Partners in our offices on May 21. And we extend our hearty congratulations to the 10 winners!

Then they and our conference attendees will pick the the one company of the 10 they most want to invest in. That company will win our Grand Prize, which consists of a $25,000 investment from General Catalyst Partners and $75,000 in services from our sponsors.
