On August 27th, we made Tech.Co history. We hosted our first ever Tech Cocktail event in Southeastern Virginia. At the end of the night we had the honor of inviting two incredible Virginia startups to Las Vegas for Celebrate 2015.
Our venue host for the night was the Virginia Air & Space Center on the waterfront in Hampton, VA. The event was part of ICE 757 Innovation Week which is the premiere east coast festival featuring top experts in entrepreneurship, film, music, and extreme sports. About 100 people showed up to check out demos from the following startups:
Southeastern Virginia's Startup of the Year– Reader’s Choice
NASONI – Nasoni is a unique patented faucet design that makes faucets dual purpose. Founder Steve Waddell was frustrated with typical faucets that are not convenient for drinking or rinsing out your mouth after brushing your teeth. After being inspired by old Roman street fountains that functioned both as traditional faucets and drinking fountains, he came up with his design for a similar type of faucet that can be attached to modern sinks. In June, Nasoni won the Get Started Hampton Roads startup competition, presented by Cox Business and Inc. Magazine
