FREE TCNewTech Pitch Night March 3, 2020

March 3 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST


How It Works

Presenters take the stage to present their new technology project or venture and answer questions from the audience. Think Shark Tank, only with no actual celebrities making offers during the meeting—that’s for you to handle later!

Five startups will have five minutes to pitch their emerging business to our audience of investors, city and government stakeholders, local tech professionals, media, and fellow entrepreneurs for a chance to win $500.

Here is the lineup for March:

 Kelly Ignace will be presenting a productivity app built around Google Tasks that aggregates and collates tasks from multiple Google (Task) accounts. The MVP goal is to market in the G-Suite Marketplace, with further development around functionality and use cases. Eventually scaling for enterprise use.

 Price Slide LLC presented by Andrew Spanding: A Social Dynamic sale platform that is focused on group purchasing. A person commits to a price, the price drops the more who commit and at the end of the promotion everyone pays the same low price. Currently we have a patent pending on the business method.

 VR Hike presented by Garrison Waugh and Zakary Miracle: VR Hike serves to enable worldwide exploration of hiking trails, city walks, and other international locations for anyone, specifically those who, due to ambulatory disabilities, are physically unable to hike, experience the many breathtaking sights our planet has to offer. Search where you want to hike, press play, and start your virtual journey.

 Junction AI presented by Vance Reavie: Junction AI takes the guesswork out of successful digital advertising. Using our solution, marketers can quickly test their ad creative to predict performance and get insights to optimize ads in minutes, saving them up to 90% of the time and cost of A/B testing and live experimentation. Our proprietary AI machine learning platform creates and trains audience models automatically, offering marketers a self-serve “no code” opportunity to benefit from applied AI machine learning.

SampleServe, Inc. presented by Russ Schindler: Environmental decisions are based on the results of sampling and testing. Our platform facilitates management, collection, labeling, and reporting of environmental field data and lab data. A good sampling plan leads to better data and better reporting. Clear and concise reports allow for better insight and solutions for environmental problems.

 There is no charge to attend or to present.
