The teams have gathered, organized their business plans, designed, developed and tinkered through two long nights and bloodshot eyes. After many cups of coffee, Monster drinks and soda, the teams will present before the judges today in this order:
First up will be Post Swap, which allows users to exchange their influence via social media.
Second will be Burpit, a mobile app that lets you rate menu items and helps users find the best rated dish they are craving.
Third is PL8SEE, combining the fun, engaging game of vanity license plate tag with the serious mission of making the roads safer.
Fourth is Uniteme, a cause marketing platform that makes it easy for people to raise money for the causes they care about. Not everyone has the time or money to give back to the community as much as they would like. Unite Me lets users give while they live by allowing them to visit great local businesses where a portion of what they spend is donated back to a cause of their choice.
Fifth is Scan Register, making product registration as simple as a barcode scan, and then creates a communication channel between the buyer and the manufacturer or retailer of a product.
Sixth is 3D Collab, community for collaborative 3D design.
Seventh is AdventureTell, a community-driven social media application that enables users to discover, rate, and share outdoor locations and activities.
Eighth is Room Champ, a white label hotel booking solution for event organizers looking to keep their attendees close to their tradeshow, conference or concert/event.
Ninth is UnPrint, removing paper receipts from the world while providing in-depth analytics to merchants and vendors.
Tenth is Happy Soul School, launching an online school for the soul: learn a spiritual practice that leads to happiness.
Eleventh is Shortsale Auditor, The “Short Sale” housing market is at halt with thousands of homes across the U.S. in “Pending Offer” status due to inaccurate paperwork that cannot be processed. Unfortunately, there are not enough resources to provide sufficient education of these serious issues that are hindering our economy. We feature a user friendly website for homeowners and representatives to securely upload bank documentation for a second opinion of accuracy. Based on an audit checklist favored by major U.S. lenders, our site offers document audit services to ensure an error free short sale package that is ready for negotiation. This further prevents the homeowner from eventually losing their home to Foreclosure due to months of file passing of inaccurate documents.
Twelfth and last is Flu Buddies, a site created to locate break-outs of the influenza virus. Through a few questions to find out demographics/your flu information, we send anonymous information to the CDC and Southern Nevada Health District. We also provide you resources to guide you on your path to getting better. You can “Check-In” to your flu, and share it on facebook!
Good luck to all the teams an we’ll see the grand prize winner at the finish line!
