The fourth 2012 5 Across meeting is officially in the books after some of the fiercest competition and best ideas yet were presented. The 5 pitches this time were:
Mike Sullivan pitched Alliance Virtual Offices which combines three central components necessary to service mobile and work-from-home professionals: People, Place and Technology. Simply put, they deliver the complete virtual office.
Sue Whitaker & Daniel Morris pitched Wine Clubs Online which provides marketing services for wineries. They offer a website to drive wine consumers directly into the wine club page of wineries to increase membership.
Joseph V. Alexander pitched triblueengineering.com which provides membrane products; blood oxygenators, gas separation units, industrial filtration units.
Chris M. pitched Kitcase which is a "mobile case that connects". Kitcase allows you to build your personal pocket kit with interchangeable accessories they call 'hard apps.'
Lauren & Pam Stein pitched Local Bride which will provide recent brides with a way to sell used wedding items purchased to brides-to-be. This helps recoup money for the recent bride and helps save money for the bride-to-be or her family.
The judges picked Alliance Virtual Offices as the winner of this 5 Across event. The audience chose LocalBride with an overwhelmingly dominant vote. There must have been a lot of brides-to-be in the audience!
Thanks for packing the house for another successful and awesome 5 Across! Make sure to come out for the next event on Halloween 2012! It will be a blast!
