mozi — Andrew bryson

  • Mozi will be a messaging platform integrating social media features, that allows users to chat, plan, and share. By providing multi-directional lines of communication between users, service industry professionals, and businesses, Mozi will increase the value of these relationships, and allow new ones to grow. With the increased direct communication between these user segments and our innovative monetization strategy, we will be able to ensure a truly user-focused experience.

Don’t get mad get paid (DGMGP) — simone spence

  • The DGMGP platform is changing the way moms who are owed tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid child support can collect their money through the release of our tech-enabled platform, named Athena. 
    Like Turbo Tax meeting Legal Zoom, Athena onboards like Turbo Tax, locates parents evading their child support orders, locates their employment and assets – both real and personal, and then like Legal Zoom, Athena generates the necessary legal documents to seize the assets that have been found.

    Collecting child support is near impossible. There is $117 billion in unpaid support in the U.S. and $1 billion is added to that amount every year. Most moms just give up, leaving money on the table. 

    Athena is a tiered SaaS model - $100 per month and with a sticky 12-15 LTV. Future opportunity to offer additional subscription services and enterprise version.

lexware solutions — rick mekdessie

  • LEXware Solutions is a mission-driven, Louisiana-based LLC company and part of the Education Technology Industry.

  • Feedback from audience members

  • Coaching from prominent business consultants, successful entrepreneurs

  • A practice opportunity for selling their concept

  • Exposure and publicity for their idea and business
