It’s been a great two days here in Chattanooga TN, the Chamber of Commerce has done a great job hosting media from across the country for two intense days of learning about Chattanooga, gigabit ethernet and the startups of the GigTank.
For the GigTank entrepreneur teams and the student teams it’s been a grueling three months, and this last week has been one of sleepless nights and startup hyper babble as they prepare to wow not only the judges, but over 500 people from the venture community in and around Tennessee. In fact, there are folks here from Revolution in DC and several VC firms in the Atlanta region.
It’s all come down to this moment. The judges have now seen all the pitches twice. They’ve all talked amongst themselves and the winners of the first every Chattanooga GigTank contest are:
The winner of the $10,000 media award from Warner Brothers went to Iron Gamer
The winner of the $50,000 student track was Babbel Sushi
The winner of the $100,000 entrepreneur track was Banyan.
