We are thrilled to be recognized by Techweek. It really validates our mission and business model. We can’t wait for what’s next.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
Last week, Pick My Solar competed in Techweek LA’s Launch competition at the Santa Monica Pier. Over 80 startups pitched their business at the annual startup festival for $50,000 in prizes and a chance to compete at Techweek Miami at the Launch National Championship for a $50,000 investment.
A panel of independent judges evaluated the contestants’ business plans and pitches to narrow the field from over 80 companies down to 16. Techweek then encouraged the audience and fans of the 16 semi-finalists to take to social media and vote for their favorite startup to decide the People’s Choice winner. The judges then narrowed the field down to 4 and the People’s Choice winner took the 5th spot.
The judges for the final round included investor and co-founder of HelloTech Richard Wolpert, Tata Teleservices COO Suneel Bandhu, mentor and investor Alyse Killeen, and investor Banafsheh Fathieh.
After winning the people’s choice award and the Launch LA Competition, Pick My Solar’s co-founder and CEO Max Aram said, “We are thrilled to be recognized by Techweek. It really validates our mission and business model. We can’t wait for what’s next.” Pick My Solar will compete against the 5 other regional Techweek Launch Champions at Techweek Miami in December for the National Launch Championship.
