Finalist Investor Pitches At TechWeek Compete

Now that TechWeek Chicago, has come and gone, I wanted to share with everyone the presentations of the top five finalists of the midVenturesLAUNCH COMPETE competition. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, COMPETE is a competition between 35 startups, selected from a pool of applicants, for over $100,000 in cash and prizes. They were judged by an expert panel, including Sam Yagan, Co-founder of OkCupid.

The finalists were:

  • BabbaCo, an online store of great products for busy parents.
  • Chute, a cloud-drive service for backing up, syncing and sharing your photos.
  • Forecast, a new app that lets you and your friends share where you’re going to be!
  • gtrot, a social travel site for people to share travel plans and get advice from their friends on destinations.
  • Safety Book, a web-based home inventory tracker and safety recall monitor.

BabbaCo ended up winning COMPETE, congratulations to them, and to all of the finalists!
