The Lexington Venture Club and Awesome Inc. will announce the finals for their "5 Across" business concept pitch competition next week.
Five Across, an event sponsored by the Bluegrass Business Development Partnership, is an informal gathering of entrepreneurs, investors, and service providers from the Bluegrass Region.
Beginning at 5pm on the 5th of December, 5 teams each are given 5 Minutes to pitch their concepts.
There have been five rounds this year featuring presentations from entrepreneurs who have pitched their ideas to a panel of judges (and audiences who also vote.) Each winning team has won $500.
The winner of the final round will take home a $4,000 cash award with the runner-up receiving $1,000.
The final event is scheduled for 5:00pm – 6:30 pm at Awesome Inc., 348 East Main Street in Lexington, KY.
Wade Powell and Geoff Carlson of Cornerstone Innovations will pitch the company's disposable cup lids for cold drinks promoted to specialty markets such as long-distance running events. The high-flow disposable cup lid allows runners to consume water or sports drinks quickly without slowing down, choking, or spilling the liquid all over themselves.
Cameron Lippert of Last Call Ventures will present Faveo, a beverage for hangover pre-treatment. This beverage, when taken during alcohol consumption, will scavenge the toxins produced from alcohol metabolism, reducing hangover symptoms or even preventing them altogether.
