CivicLift Winner of the 2014 HYPE Entrepreneurship Award!

Of 19 competing Connecticut startups, CivicLift won the HYPE Entrepreneurship Awards for the Pre-Launch category.

Just this past Wednesday we were honored to be selected as winners of the 2014 HYPE Entrepreneurship Award for Best Business – Pre Launch!

The rules were simple: present in front of a panel of judges and a live audience – and with five minutes to speak and five slides to persuade – convince them that our idea was poised to grow and succeed. And hey – we did it!

It was the first time we’ve shared our concept publicly and our first time competing live on stage for a grant. Sure, it was a little nerve racking – but well worth it! Along with sharing our excitement in our accomplishment, we a wanted to take the time to thank HYPE and the judges for not only choosing us, but giving us the opportunity to present among so many deserving contestants!

I started CivicLift because the communities I love – and the reasons why I love them – were impossible to discover online. Since my background is in web design and digital marketing, it bothered me to think about the missed visibility for the local businesses and events. After launching a few prototypes and witnessing the impact, CivicLift stole my heart and my team and I grew the idea into full scale software.
