Call Center CEO to moderate judging panel at StartupCamp 6

(September 27, 2012) WILLOW GROVE, Pa. – CEO & President of AnswerNet, Gary Pudles, has been invited to moderate the judging panel for StartupCamp 6 in Austin, Texas. StartupCamp, the Comm Edition, is the only entrepreneur pitch event focused exclusively on the communications industry. As a former panel judge, Pudles’ experience makes him an ideal fit as the moderator.

“One of my biggest passions in life is growing a business from the ground up,” says Pudles. “I did that with several companies, including AnswerNet, and I definitely learned some valuable lessons. Because of StartupCamp, I not only get to share these lessons with today’s young, bright entrepreneurs, but I also get to help one of them reach their dreams. It’s not every day you get to do something that rewarding.”

Pudles will moderate the pitch session, during which four budding startup companies will be given five minutes each to sell their ideas. He will also field questions from the audience. Ultimately, one startup is awarded top honors.

StartupCamp 6 will be held October 4, 2012 at the Austin Convention Center. For more information about StartupCamp, please visit For more information on Gary Pudles and AnswerNet, please visit
