Pitch: Think back to your childhood when you heard the sound of the ice cream truck a few blocks away.

We're bringing back this feeling with smoothie trucks that drive around your city and town delivering delicious smoothies.
Pitch: The developer job market is at peak insanity right now. One placement of a talented developer will land a recruiter tens of thousands of dollars.

Pitch: I attend my fair share of sporting events in person. Baseball games, football, some basketball, some hockey. After a particular game, I quickly forget what happened. Who was the starting pitcher, who scored a touchdown, what was the final score. With Sport Checkin Stats, we read your Foursquare / Swarm checkin data and create a statistical data profile for every event you've ever attended.
Pitch: Nowadays, technology companies know more about our lives than we do. They meticulously analyze the data we provide them and make incredibly accurate predictions about us. Most of the time, this data crunching adds value to us as a user. One area that has been woefully ignored in this department is food. I want a company to possess and analyze my food graph, and no one is stepping up to the plate.
Pitch: Advertising just isn't what it used to be. With some much demand for people's attention, marketers need to come up with new ways to build excitement around their product.
