SWAKE x Startup Runway Pitch Competition

SWAKE x Startup Runway Pitch Competition

Last Thursday, December 15th, SWAKE competed in the 17th Annual Startup Runway Pitch Competition and took home the prize! Located in the Woodruff Arts Center, ten different startups from around Georgia gave a five minute pitch of their business to both the panel of judges and the audience. Each competitor shared a synopsis of their business, their current team and goals moving forward, and how winning this competition could impact their company. After each CEO shared their visions and expertise, the judges chose three finalists who each went home with $10,000 to put back into their business. SWAKE was chosen for the Community Award and was presented with this check by the Mayor himself, Andre Dickens. It was such a fun way to celebrate how far SWAKE has come this year and end the year strong.

A big thanks to Valor VC for hosting this incredible event and congratulations to Vanessa for taking home the prize yet again! Hope everyone has a happy holidays and New Year, and stay tuned for some exciting news coming in January!
