4 Finalists Competing to Be the Nation’s Hottest Showcasing Startup

Posted by Liliana Castaño on October 10, 2014

After a day replete with interesting sessions and discussions – from growing the talent pool to accelerating startup cities – we’ve arrived at the second and final day of this year’s Tech Cocktail Celebrate Conference. Today, we’ve got everything from Ben Parr and renowned illusionist David Copperfield discussing how to captivate your audience, to how to unleash your creativity with award-winning illustrator Rachel Ryle.

But, of course, we can’t forget about the startups. At this year’s Celebrate, 51 startups from across the country (including one from Argentina!) got the opportunity to pitch their ideas at our National Startup Showcase and Celebration, last night, at the Place on 7th in Downtown Las Vegas. This morning, we’re extremely pleased to announce the Final 4 startups that will compete this afternoon for Tech Cocktail’s Nation’s Hottest Showcasing Startup:

Flat Out of Heels (Miami): Flat Out of Heels, LLC is the creator of the Flat Out rollable flat and the Flat Out shoe vending machine. Our rollable flats can be discretely carried for emergencies or worn all stay for stylish, durable comfort. Placed in venues like airports, nightclubs, malls and hotels, where many women are wearing heels, the vending machines make it convenient to get emergency shoes when needed. Step out of the high heels, slip into Flat Outs and go.

HIS Energy (Baltimore): HIS Energy, LLC provides a self-powered sensor that gathers its power from the energy available in the environment (Solar, Vibrations,Thermal, Radio Frequency). This is made possible by a proprietary intelligent power management module that can gather and store multiple forms of energy simultaneously. This energy is used to power sensors for the “Internet of Things”. Where everything will be connected to everything.

Popular Pays (Chicago): Pop Pays is a platform that incentivizes Instagram influencers to post about brands. Brands can list offers on our app, ranging from a free cup of coffee for people with 500 followers to a paid gig opportunity for the biggest influencers. As a result, brands get content 12x cheaper than buying ads direct from Instagram and much more authentic and effective since it’s coming from a real person instead of the brand itself. ​

Waleteros (Miami): Waleteros is much better than a Check Cashing Store.  Waleteros enables underbanked and unbanked US Hispanic consumers to cash checks, pay bills, send money and receive small loans using their smartphones. Anywhere, anytime. Waleteros is more convenient, cheaper and safer than a Check Cashing Store.
