Last Friday, we were excited to welcome a room full of guests to Eastern Foundry to participate in Demo Day with six of Eastern Foundry’s most successful companies. The audience was comprised of a range of U.S. Government agency Innovation officers, decision makers from big primes, and venture capitalists. The day kicked off as everyone joined together over a networking breakfast for a chance to meet each other and chat before the first company, Qntfy kicked off the first pitch.
Casey Hilland, from Qntfy, gave a strong pitch on how their technology helps measure PTSD and helps prevent suicide for our veterans. Qntfy was Eastern Foundry’s first winner of the Foundry Cup, and it was exciting to see the growth of their company from the previous year.
Following Casey, Patrick Weeks represented Sandboxx and gave a great presentation about how they are using their technology to help connect military with family members and friends through a custom social media platform and letter service.
Next, Linh Huong gave a compelling presentation for Davincian Healthcare about how they are driving down healthcare costs by using their patented analytics and insights platform. The audience stayed entertained with a movie showing how their product integrates with Amazon’s Echo technology.
After Linh finished, the group took a few minutes to take a break before returning for a presentation from Kevin Parker of Neostek. He shared with the audience how their award-winning info management technology and IT consulting is helping the U.S. Government clients put information to work with SharePoint, CRM & more. They also announced their recent award of becoming number 604 on the Inc. 5000 list.
Following their presentation, FiscalNote took the stage and discussed how their platform is creating transparency for analyzing government risk and opportunity. It was very impressive to see the exponential growth they’ve maintained since they opened doors in 2013.
And finally, we finished up with Greg Llinas from GL Solutions, sharing how their extensive knowledge on contract management gives them an advantage to their government consulting business.
Following the 6 presentations, the group broke for a lunch catered by Taylor’s Gourmet Sandwiches. Many attendees stayed around to get a chance to talk with the company’s individually to talk about potential opportunities or to follow up on ideas from their pitches. Overall, it was a very successful event for all that were involved and we are looking forward to Eastern Foundry’s next demo day in the fall.
