Southland pitch winner to get cash bonus

Sarah Lacy, whose Pando team is co-organizing next week's Southland conference at Marathon Music Works, says she has accidently exceeded her goal of having 10 judges for the event's startup pitch competition. The 11th investor to commit is Paul Judge, an executive at Barracuda Networks, which means the winning startup team will get the opportunity to negotiate for a $110,000 investment.
