TCNewTech Pitch Contest May 2020

These four startups pitched their ideas to our audience of investors, city and government stakeholders, local tech professionals, media, and fellow entrepreneurs during an online event on May 5, 2020. Here is a summary of each of the presenters:

Breathscape is the first iOS application that accurately analyzes the breath in real-time and provides continuous musical biofeedback, effectively training individuals to relax the nervous system. The app was launched in the Apple store in April 2020 and the technology is currently patent pending.

 HONEST Security (Jacob Holcomb) A router and software built to prioritize security and privacy. Raising the bar on essential cybersecurity for the home and beyond with a simple, easy to use command center with optional access to security professionals.
