Last week was the Challenge Cup Denver’s Regional competition, held at Galvanize.  Dozens of startups delivered their one-minute pitch on stage to a panel of judges, where one company from each category would emerge as the winner and move onto the final round.

In the spirit of Tech Cocktail, however, we want your take.  We ran a poll for each category (Education, Energy, Health, and Smart Cities), to see who you thought was the hottest of the group.  The readers have spoken.  Below are your Reader’s Choice winners.
