WILD PITCH, WILD SUCCESS!
WILD PITCH: ACCELERATORS
Eight innovative startups from national accelerator programs presented their best new ideas to an audience of DIG SOUTH attendees, expert judges and investors. Business pitches covered innovative solutions in health care, social media, toy robotics and other industries. The audience chimed in with strong opinions as the judges whittled down the list of contenders for the $10,000 investment from Capital A Partners. And that $10k quickly became $30k when two investors matched the offer. Congrats go to Dynepic from Charleston's Harbor Accelerator!
