(January 24, 2013) WILLOW GROVE, Pa. – CEO and President of AnswerNet, Gary Pudles, will be returning as moderator of the judging panel at IT Expo’s StartupCamp7 this coming January 31 in Miami, Florida. As a judge and moderator of past StartupCamps, Pudles is a welcomed and familiar face to the panel. He is eager to evaluate the new group of young talent and share his experience as an entrepreneur.
“I have started many businesses throughout my career, including AnswerNet in 1998 and SubOut and Splendtastic just this past year,” says Pudles. “I am very passionate about growing a business from the ground up, and really enjoy listening to other entrepreneurs who are just starting out. Hearing their stories and sharing advice is a rewarding experience and a major reason I continue to be the moderator of the StartupCamp panel discussions. StartupCamp7 is my third consecutive year of participation, and I certainly hope it won’t be the last.”
Pudles will moderate the discussion between the panel of judges and startup companies. Each startup is given five minutes to pitch their business ideas to the panel of experts. As the moderator, Pudles will also field questions from the audience. Ultimately, one startup is awarded top honors.
