We are super excited to be included as a finalist in the third annual Biz 417 Excellence in Technology Awards. We are a finalist in the Most Innovative Startup category and even better, the other three finalists were also all part of the e-factory accelerator program with us this last summer!
On Thursday, Feb. 28, they will name the winners in each category at an awards ceremony where they say they will be, “recognizing the pioneers, originators, creators and developers making waves in the local tech and business communities.” …
Wow, how humbling… honestly we are just thrilled to see our name mentioned alongside all these great innovators and companies! Thank you Biz 417 for the recognition!

What is DEMO DAY?
It is the finale of the efactory’s Accelerator Program for Cohort 3 and a chance to hear our final pitches.
SelectSitter and the two other companies in the program (Easy Access Hunts and FitbyPhase) will have 10 minutes each to update community members on our progress and next steps.
Demo Day will be held upstairs at the efactory. It’s free to attend, and we would absolutely love the support.
