Critique, an application that enables peer feedback and review for educators and the learning industry, took first place honors during Bloomington B-Start’s Demo Day held last Friday (Dec. 4) at IU’s Cyberinfrastructure Building.
Nine teams are taking part in the pre-accelerator program, which is offered by the Bloomington Economic Development Corp. and primary sponsorship from Innovate Indiana for businesses run by Indiana University and Ivy Tech students. The Demo Day competition saw each team present 5-minute pitches for its project before a panel of judges, along with submitting a business plan for critical review.
The winning team earned a cash prize of $2,500 to continue its business development, with second place earning $1,500 and third place receiving $500.
Placing second was TrickLab, an online martial arts tricking instructional platform and marketplace. Third place went to Beatmatch, a marketplace for instrumental music that targets producers and recording artists.
