Well, a total of around 40 women-led startups applied since that announcement was made, and now the Vinetta Project’s leaders have chosen three semifinalists for a pitch night on March 29.
Here’s who has a chance to claim the $20,000:
- Lily Cua, COO of Aspire. Cua will pitch her company’s “comprehensive perk management software.”
- Hulya Aksu, founder of ListenPort. ListenPort helps companies gather and respond to customer feedback.
- Alexandra McManus, of Prescient Systems, will pitch her company’s big data analytics for trade resource management.
The three semifinalists will pitch in front of an “esteemed panel” that includes Julia Taxin, VP at Grotech Ventures; Penny Lee, chair at K Street Capital; Dan Berger, CEO of Social Tables; and Carolyn Parent, CEO at LiveSafe. The idea is to provide the presenters with “critical feedback, targeted questions and actionable advice.”
The pitch competition and networking will take place in the new community event space at Social Tables HQ.
