Summer might be cooling down, but our Tech Cocktail Mixer & Startup Showcases are still running hot. Last night we packed the Crystal Tech Fund, with the help of Vornado, with entrepreneurs, tech enthusiasts, and DC community members eager to see who would win the pitch competition for DC’s Hottest Showcasing Startup. The competition awards these Hottest Showcasing Startups titles to both the readers’ choice and the live event polling, but DC was unanimous and we have ONE winner who has emerged to the top of BOTH categories.

So, without further adieu:

DC’s Hottest Showcasing Startup – Reader’s Choice and Best Pitch Winner

Greenease: Greenease is a mobile app on the iOS platform that allows consumers to search for restaurants, cafes, grocers and caterers that buy local, and/or provide sustainable food options. Users can search by grass-fed and hormone-free meats, sustainable seafood, organic, local and more. Start learning about where your food comes from when you dine out today!

Best Pitch Runner Up

HeadCount, Inc. (now FreePing): Mobile users in emerging markets do not access mobile internet due to high cost, price sensitivity, and unreliable networks. HeadCount solves this problem by pairing the global phenomenon of “missed calling” with free incoming SMS to keep consumers updated on the go.

Congratulations to Greenease. Your win includes an invitation to a future Tech Cocktail Week, as well as inclusion at Tech Cocktail Celebrate, our national startup showcase held in Downtown Vegas in October.
