Launch Silicon Valley 2008 is accepting executive summaries for about one more week, until May 9. This is the best kind of venture contest — sponsored by venture capital for venture capital — looking at what it wants to be the best and most interesting startups around. Organizers want startups that are already launched, that have something to show, but haven’t been around very long.

The prize? The right kind of audience. Journalists, other opinion makers and, generally, people with money to invest.
