LAS VEGAS, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Samir Pancholi is pleased to announce the winner of the first annual Launching Las Vegas award: Find Veggies. Launching Las Vegas was created to celebrate the time, energy, and hard work local startup companies and entrepreneurs devote to helping Las Vegas grow as an economic hub.
"Our community has a growing number of wonderful startup companies and entrepreneurs innovating new products, technology, and services," Dr. Pancholi states. "I'm thrilled that I could help highlight some of their hard work through this award."
Almost 800 votes were cast in the inaugural Launching Las Vegas contest, as community members voted daily for their favorite of five nominated startup companies: Charitweet, Find Veggies, Mint Locker, Stitch Factory, and Trailermade. All of these companies show great promise, and while only one winner was chosen, Dr. Pancholi hopes the contest brought awareness to all of the startups.
"All of these companies are winners in my eyes," says Dr. Pancholi. "It was wonderful watching the community participate and learn more about our nominees in the process."
With a record number of votes, Find Veggies took the lead and walks away the winner of Launching Las Vegas for 2015—and earns the accompanying cash prize of $1,000. Find Veggies is a cross-platform mobile app that will bring the farmers market right to your phone. Now you can easily order fresh local products directly from farmers market vendors in your area. The best part is that you can get those products delivered right to your door. Find Veggies started with only an idea just a few months ago and now they are excited to be launching their product locally in Las Vegas in November. You can sign up for early access on their website.
Stitch Factory came in a close second, making them the official Launching Las Vegas runner up and winner of $250. Stitch Factory is a fully integrated fashion studio that focuses on brand development, production, education, and community in an effort to support, promote, and inspire creativity. Influenced by the tech co-working movement, Stitch Factory wanted to create a space for designers to co-create with one another. They provide a designer-ready studio and offer unique opportunities and services through groundbreaking education, skillful design, quality production, and curating brands in innovative ways.
"Congratulations are in order for both Find Veggies and Stitch Factory," states Dr. Pancholi. "These companies are taking great strides to provide high quality products and services to the Las Vegas community, and I'm honored to be able to support their efforts through Launching Las Vegas."
