FreshTracks' Peak Pitch Event Wrap Up3/10/2014
We would like to thank the entrepreneurs, investors, and sponsors who participated in Peak Pitch '14 at Sugarbush Resort last Thursday, March 6. This year’s registration for Peak Pitch was our best turnout yet and included many new entrepreneurs who pitched to 60 investors and advisors. It was a beautiful day, and everyone enjoyed a day of networking, pitching, and giving and receiving feedback on the slopes. Congratulations to our winning pitchers:
• Douglas Hartwell, Bitybean Child Carriers
• Michael Palmer, Waterotor Energy Technologies
• Robbie Adler, Faraday
• Chris Jones, ForMyOdds.com
• Rich Finigan, American Continuing Education Institute
• Bryan Sirkia, Rocket Listings
We would like to thank our hosts Sugarbush Resort and Win Smith for the use of the facility and all that they did to make Peak Pitch a great event for us once again. We would also like to express our appreciation for those who donated prizes for the “pitch-off” winners: Bitybean Child Carriers, Cafe Comply, Deano's Jalapenos, DSPS Clothing, Mudd Wyeth, Vew-Do Balance Boards & Ziggi.
As always we could not have done this without our sponsors. Many of the sponsors were able to attend, lend an ear to entrepreneurs, and provide constructive feedback. We greatly appreciate their support: Merritt, Merritt & Moulton (Founding Sponsor), VT Agency of Commerce and Community Development (Founding Sponsor), Champlain College BYOBiz, Dinse Knapp & McAndrew, Downs Rachlin & Martin, Gallagher, Flynn & Company, Gravel & Shea, Harbor Light Capital Partners, LaunchVT, Programs on Creativity and Innovation in the Liberal Arts-Middlebury College, North Country Angels, PNC Business Credit, Trust Company of Vermont, UVM Office of Technology Commercialization, Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies, Vermont Technology Council, Vermont Community Loan Fund & the VSJF Flexible Capital Fund. We hope that everyone found Peak Pitch Vermont to be a fun and productive experience. The support of our sponsors, the generosity of the prize donors, and the enthusiasm of everyone in attendance made for a great day.
