March Madness Early Risers features alumni startups

March 19, 2019

We’re bringing back some Early Risers alumni this Friday, March 22, for a special March Madness edition!

Eight founders/founder teams will face off, bracket-style, for a fun, three-round competition. In round one, all entrepreneurs will present their 30-second elevator pitches.

Winners moving on to round two will present two-minute pitches.

The final two teams in round three will present full 10-minute pitches.

A panel of judges from the local entrepreneur communities will offer feedback & scores after each pitch. The audience will also get to vote to move startups into the next round.

The returning entrepreneurs/startups are:

Jerricha Hoskins and CrownMe Coil Care, her natural hair care line;

Will Foster and Picnk, his prepped-meal service;

Carlos Portis and Frank “Buddy” Pitts, Jr., and Inveloped Cards, their texted cards service;

Tom Heil and Covur, his wifi service for small businesses;

Angela Malone and Dr. Scribbles, offering educational, interactive exam paper for children in hospitals;

Dave Bean and Mobius, his coupon-sharing service;

Sukhman Singh and Divine Services, his on-demand valet service;

& Jon Umstead and Plan Canvas, his business planning software.
