Last night we were back in Kansas City for a Mixer & Startup Showcase, and we had a blast! It included the Best Pitch award determined by our live SMS poll and the pre-event Reader’s Choice online poll. Here are the winners:

Kansas City’s Hottest Showcasing Startup – Best Pitch

CouponCloud, Inc – They disrupt the $14 billion paper coupon processing industry by enabling retailers to process all their coupons at the point of sale, with no need to ship coupons to clearing houses in Mexico to be hand-processed. As a side effect of a highly secure platform, they also nearly eliminate over a billion dollars in coupon fraud that is currently absorbed by the industry annually.

Nobl – Improving patient satisfaction (HCAHPS) scores is an ongoing challenge for today’s hospitals. Implementing tools to maintain consistency and provide effective ways of constantly improving these scores is necessary for a hospital to stand out among its peers and retain optimal reimbursement from Medicare. Nobl has a software solution that enhances the entire process of hourly rounding, making it more efficient, effective, and insightful. As a result, they are able to improve nurse behaviors, revitalize family oversight, and establish visibility into every facet of the process. Hospital staff is more engaged, management has unprecedented access into workflow and compliance, family members receive revolutionary quality assurance, and each patient’s quality of care is elevated as a result.

Congrats to both winners, and thanks to the rest of the showcasing startups and all our attendees.
