Date:10/31/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

Today, 1776, an incubator platform located a few blocks from the White House, announced the winners of Challenge Cup for the Washington, D.C. region.

Challenge Cup is a startup competition spanning 16 cities around the world and culminating in Washington, D.C. to find the world’s most promising startups tackling education, healthcare, energy, and city challenges.

Thirty-five startups, distilled from 70 regional applications, competed during the evening of October 29th event with over 425 attendees. The competitors also participated in an accelerator program for the two days preceding the competition.

“We had high expectations for the D.C. regional competition because it was the first of 16 in our global competition,” said Donna Harris, co-founder of 1776. “The number of new companies in this region innovating to solve critical, global challenges is inspiring and the feedback from attendees has been overwhelmingly positive. We applaud the startups, mentors and community that came out in full force to participate in both the pop-up accelerator and pitch competition and get this global initiative kicked off in the best possible way.”

Washington, DC’s Mayor Vincent Gray was on hand to announce the finalists in the completion. The regional winners include:

Education: Educannon - Online learning environment to build and share interactive video lessons made by teachers for their students.

Energy: Ethical Electric - Energy company that powers as many American homes and businesses as possible with 100% clean energy from local, renewable sources like wind and solar.

Healthcare: Dorsata - Platform gives clinicians ability to build evidence-based pathways and guidelines collaboratively.
