Fixt came out on top of a Ravens-sponsored pitch competition to close out Labs@LightCity on Thursday.

Six founders presented their startups as part of the Ravens Innovation Challenge to close out the SocialLab@LightCity track.

CEO Luke Cooper pitched for Fixt, telling the crowd about work with customers such as Stanford IT Services and T. Rowe Price. The Fells Point-based startup makes an app that connects users with mobile device repair, and recently closed on $2 million in new funding.

The prize is an advertising package with the Ravens, which includes signage at M&T Bank Stadium, advertising on the Ravens’ digital channels and spots at training camp and the Ravens Flock Festival. It’s valued at $200,000.

While Cooper told judges about the company’s enterprise sales, he said the company would benefit from the Ravens’ package because the app is also available directly to consumers.

Along with the prize package, the Ravens represented with free safety Eric Weddle presenting to the winner, and VP of Corporate Sales and Development Kevin Rochlitz was among the judges.

DinnerTime, Loople and Hungry Harvest were also among the startups pitching, as well as bag and accessory makers Treason Toting Co., and bee-inspired home goods maker Waxing Kara.
