These four promising start-ups founded/co-founded by black women proved to be the main attraction, not only because of their live products, but because of their experience, education, passion, and business acumen under pressure. All of the winners received coaching sessions with Jeanne Sullivan of Starvest Partners and Lauren Maillan Bias of Gen Y Capital. But only one stood victorious. The winner walked away with:

- A Non-Pitch Meeting with Andreessen Horowitz, and


- A Meeting with Comcast Ventures.
