We had a great number of strong, well prepared submissions, thank you to everyone who took the time to put their ideas out there... and congratulations to our five entrepreneurs below who will be pitching to small advisory boards of experts this Tuesday to hone and develop their pitch:
Rachel Sterne, Groundreport.com -a participatory news platform that democratizes the media.
Tikva Morowati - an addictive social software gaming platform to teach investing and money management to 20 - 40 year olds who are not (yet) money savvy
Mila Bakhareva, Istari Technologies LLC - Data-mining systems and visualization software based on internet analytics, for predictive modeling of future trends
Jocelyn Anker, PopArtForTots - an online retailer catering to the style-conscious mom interested in treating her tot to a special, non-standard milieu of artwork.
Tiffany Sumner, Flyerrewards.com - a unique, FREE service to travelers, tracking their rewards automatically through one single site
We have a great lineup of women participating, and are really looking forward to Tuesday's event and to seeing these ideas grow and develop, and to help move them to the next level.
