On Thursday, June 13, TechAlliance held our biennial 60-Second Pitch Competition & Awards Celebration at Voices.com.
The evening showcased a roster of exciting and diverse tech companies pitching in hopes of claiming their share of the prize pool valued at a total of almost $50,000 worth of business acceleration resources to help their ventures grow.
Congratulations to our winners of the competition:
In third place, our judges awarded an accessibility plugin that is making AODA compliance easier with just one line of code. Congratulations to Ascend Applications!
In second place, bridging the gap between business and technology by providing unified communications and call centre services, Nielsen IT Consulting
Our first place winner for the evening was VidHug, a video-stitching service that brings long-distance loved ones closer together with heartfelt “surprise group videos”. Look to VidHug for an impactful alternative to the traditional greeting card for special occasions.
Special mention goes to the People’s Choice Award Winner, Praxis, for their innovative oral hygiene products enhanced by vitamin-mineral supplements to make waking up and going to bed a breeze.
Thanks to our judges for the evening for their thoughtful and constructive critique: Gord Delamont, Founder of London Inc. Magazine; James Campbell, Entrepreneur-in-Residence at TechAlliance and Mary Weil, Faculty Director, HBA Program at Ivey Business School.
