After a long night of perfecting their presentation Lindsey, Meghan, and Sheena Koshy, pitched their app Storedrobe in the Glidea Pitch Competition on Tuesday July 16th. Chosen as one of seven finalists, Storedrobe was only one of the many ideas presented to a respected panel of judges including Kelvin Thomas, Glide Interactive Owner and Chairman; John K. Carlson, Glide Interactive CEO; Dr. Larry Thompson, President of Ringling College of Art and Design; David Houle, Resident Futurist at Ringling College of Art and Design; David Adkins, Director of Systems and Digital Technology at Herald-Tribune Media Group; and Marcie McGeehan, Director of Sales and Marketing at The Ritz-Carlton of Sarasota. Storedrobe’s Glidea competition included a physical product, a lifestyle brand, and finance, productivity, and social networking mobile apps.
The prize for this idea-pitching competition is what all tech startups need most, the coding and development of product, provided by Glide Interactive. Lindsey and Sheena were excited to be joined by two of their friends also included as finalist in the event. Fellow 2013 Busprenuer, Michael LaPlante, and Startup Weekend Tampa Bay StreetWize team member Matthew Foreman.
Storedrobe is the brainchild of Lindsey Nickel, Travis Miller, Austin Allbritton and Sheena Koshy created while working on StartupBus Southeast. Storedrobe hopes to answer the age old question - I am looking at a closet full of clothes, why do I have nothing to wear? Storedrobe allows users to track their wardrobe, match it to future purchases, and get advice from style mavens. The app takes the guesswork out of looking great.
