Una Pizca Wins WIN Lab Miami Demo Night Pitch Competition
Babson College Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab® in Miami hosted their inaugural Demo Night last Thursday evening with the program’s entrepreneurs showcasing their companies to the Miami community.
The WIN Lab® teamed up with Venture Café for the event, a prominent foundation in Miami’s start up ecosystem that seeks to connect entrepreneurs to resources with the intent of driving action. Venture Café’s wide following for their weekly Thursday night events increased maximum exposure for our WINners. With over 200 people in attendance, the night kicked off with interactive exhibits as each entrepreneur demonstrated their company. Attendees were encouraged to vote for their favorite demo for the Fan Favorite Award.
The night transitioned into WIN Lab’s Demo Night Pitch Competition where five pre-selected WIN Lab entrepreneurs, or “WINners”, pitched live in front of a panel of expert judges. Melissa Krinzman, Managing Partner at Krillion Ventures, Bob Fitts, Founder and Producer of SUP-X, and Ashley Lucas, Director of WIN Lab Boston, evaluated the presentations.
Andreina Morales and Ana Schloeter, Co-Founders of Una Pizca, the most trusted cooking site in Latin America, swept the night as they won both the pitch competition and the Fan Favorite awards to take home $5,000 worth of legal services from Akerman LLP and 500 business cards from MOO.
Congratulations to Una Pizca and the rest of our Miami WINners on a successful evening.
