Congrats to the LivePitch winners

Congrats to today’s LivePitch audience favorite, Chaperon, and to the investor panel favorite Livengood Engineering. Each company received $500 cash and $500 in legal services from HRO. Thanks also to Silicon Valley Bank for sponsoring the event, as well as to the other companies who also did a great job presenting –, Magic Home Entertainment, and Torii Medical.

The guys from did a great job of putting this event together in only about 10 days. We had about 50 people in the audience, and each person got $100 in “funny money” to distribute to their favorite companies after the pitches. This was kind of a neat way to go, because it got the audience talking up close and personal with the entrepreneurs.

In the end, it was a good networking event and seemed to live up to the spirit of EntrepreneurshipWeek USA. Hopefully will come back to Colorado in the near future and hold another event, maybe with a bit more time to plan for it.

Thanks also to everyone who came out to check this out. I hope the networking and the experience was worthwhile.
