FIRST PRIZE WINNER: Ashley Weingart, Perfectly Imperfect Produce

Recognizing the opportunity to save perfectly good food from landfills, Ashley Weingart created Perfectly Imperfect Produce, a direct-to-consumer sales channel for fresh produce with slight cosmetic imperfections. The company acquires fruits and vegetables from local farms and suppliers, repacks it in subscription boxes and delivers it to homes/offices throughout Ohio. A box of food is donated to a family in need with every purchase.

Ashley plans to utilize the pitch funds to launch a new meal kit product line. The meal kits will capitalize on slicing and preparing the produce, which will differentiate her product in the marketplace.

RUNNER UP WINNER: Augment Therapy, Lindsay Watson

Augment Therapy was discovered by Lindsay Watson as a way to engage in important healing exercises and motivate kids by using augmented reality and interactive software. It can be used in clinical settings, the home and the office as a motivational tool, progress tracker and exercise prompt for children needing therapeutic exercise.

Augment Therapy’s goal moving forward is to create more awareness. Lindsay plans to utilize the funding to create video and marketing content that tells the stories of the people using and benefiting from their software.
