Hundreds applied to the FOCUS100 Pitch-It Competition, but only four made the cut. 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:

- Finalist status for TechStars NYC 2013 session

- A Non-Pitch Meeting with Andreessen Horowitz, and

- A Meeting with Comcast Ventures.

Can you guess who won?
