13 Jul Sights and Sounds of #InnoShow15
The seventh annual Innovation Showcase took place last week at the Dallara IndyCar Factory. Over 70 companies were given 60 seconds each to pitch to potential investors. At the end of the day it was Pi Lab and their product Edwin the Duck that took home the grand prize of over $70,000 in cash and prizes!
Couldn’t make it to the event? No worries! Brian Brosmer of Brosmer Photographic captured all the action. Check out some of our favorite shots below.
This first photo was taken high above the crowd that consisted of more than 900 attendees. If you want to meet with the best and brightest from Indiana’s tech scene be sure to add the Innovation Showcase to your 2016 destinations.
Never witnessed a pitch competition before? You’re missing out on some seriously exciting stuff! Numerous companies that took part in the competition are also Launch Fishers member companies. Brand Amper is one of those companies. Here’s Jason Seiden during his 60 second pitch.
Bailey Paxton is co-founder of Paxton Medical. He also happens to be a former intern with us at Launch Fishers. This year Bailey became the first high school student to ever pitch at the Innovation Showcase. And, to add to his success, he made it to the final round of the pitch competition!
The afternoon consisted of conversations and networking at company booths. The Dallara factory was bursting with energy as time grew closer to announcing the grand prize winner.
At 4:00 p.m. the crowd gathered around the stage once more to hear which company would take home the $73,000 in cash and prizes. Congratulations to the team at Pi Lab and their product Edwin the Duck! Check out the details on the prize package here.
Here’s one last photo of Launch Fishers founder, John Wechsler as he speaks with WISH-TV. We were all proud to be a major sponsor of this year’s event. We can’t wait for #InnoShow16!
