VEDA Data Solutions CEO Meghan Gaffney Buck was named the winner of the Vinetta Project Venture Challenge at a pitch event held last week.
The win gives the startup $20,000 in cash from GSP and Paley Rothman, as well as four free months of offices space at MakeOffices.
As Technical.ly DC reported, Buck and VEDA recently closed on $1 million in seed funding. The startup’s platform uses machine learning to make sure health provider directories have the correct information.
