The Launch Pad at the University of Miami announced the finalists for the 2010 Elevator Pitch Contest sponsored by The Miami Herald. Over 140 businesses entered, and after four preliminary rounds held throughout South Florida, just 22 contestants remain.
Marcos J. Menendez, Co_Founder of Momares said “I had 90 seconds to tell a tough looking panel of judges and an auditorium full of UM business students why Momares was a good product and one worthy of angel investment…needless to say, we got lucky. Come November 8th we are going to need for everyone to vote for us.”
Momares is seen as an underdog in this contest and hopes to impress the judges in the final on Tuesday, November 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the University of Miami – Storer Auditorium.
