About the Fast Forward People’s Choice Competition
Fast forward your company choice directly to the next level of judging which will be held May 6-8.  The top two companies receiving the most votes, and are not selected by the judges as semifinalists, will become “wild card” presenters in the next step of the competition.  Help your favorite company move closer
to the $300,000 grand prize! Vote!

About the People's Choice Voting (More info ...)
All the dynamic companies competing in the second annual Fast Forward People's Choice competition refined a one minute “elevator” pitch and taped it in the TAG TV studio to entice your vote. Take time to view all the videos, then place one vote for your favorite. Multiple votes will not be tallied. Voting will end at 10 AM April 29, 2009. .
