Congratulations to our Semi Finalists!

Being our inaugural year, we really didn’t have an idea of what we would be receiving in terms of business plan submissions. How good will they be? Are there easy to spot winners? Did we tell enough people about the event?! (this question is no longer on our minds as so many of our events are SOLD OUT! But don’t worry there are still some spots left, check out our Event Details page to find out which ones)


After a looong process of reviewing business plans and endlessly debating with the review committee, I can tell you this: paring the submissions down to only 21 entrants has been the hardest part of planning our event. No, it wasn’t the night I only got 3 hours of sleep working on the web site launch. And I’m sure our longest and busiest day next week still won’t compare to the selection process. We received well written plans, innovative ideas that made us think, “I want to hear more”. And we will! I’m really excited to hear the pitches next week, I’m only sad that we were limited to so few of the submissions. So.... As you’ve all been waiting.... The Semi Finalists are:


800 PBX



Dream Village

HealthWorldWeb LLC




MicroGen Systems, LLC


Oyster Digital Media

People Capital

Pogby, Inc

Pure Origin, LLC

Rentricity Inc.

StyleHop Corp.

TrialX (Applied Informatics, Inc.)





Thanks for reading our blog, see you all next week!
