On Wednesday, August 6, we’re headed to the historic Fenway Park in Boston for a contest in which six WeWork startups will be presenting. They won’t be throwing baseballs, but they’ll be pitching their hearts out to win $15,000 for their business. Fenway Fast Pitch will be hosted by Beacon Capital Partners and WeWork in an effort to bring our New York and Boston entrepreneurial communities together.
Prior to this event, our member companies demoed in both WeWork Boston and WeWork New York locations for a chance to land a spot at Fenway Fast Pitch. Each company will have three minutes to show off their products in “innings” and the audience will decide which popular startup will win the ultimate prize.
Here’s a sneak peek at the presenting companies:
Generation Citizen, a company with locations at WeWork South Station, SOMA, and Soho West, is working to empower young people in the U.S. to become engaged citizens. They’re teaching teenagers direct political action through innovative curriculum and programs where students work with local leaders.
Parking in Boston will never be an issue again with the help of this this WeWork South Station company. Spotlight Parking allows users to summon a valet closest to your desired destination. BostInno recently called them the “Uber of valet parking”.
