The rain clouds over the skies in Madison couldn’t dampen spirits or shrink attendance at the capacity-crowd BullPen event on the campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University last evening, at which a single company claimed both the Panel Award for Most Fundable as well as the Audience Favorite. KidGooRoo won the night in a presentation by Co-Founder & CEO Alex Skove, who described her business model as “the Yelp for kids’ extra-curricular activities”. KidGooRoo has emerged as the #1 online resource for parental review of their children’s real-life afterschool activities. The free site helps parents partner with neighborhood businesses to help school-age kids gravitate toward the passions that will positively shape their futures.
The competition for KidGooRoo was tough, with presentations by the following early-stage presenting companies, as well as an undergraduate student enterprise from host campus, FDU.
FokisOn: An intriguing company that offers a unique interactive activity, called a Moment, which captures the attention of your colleagues through incentives.
Zeblok : A groundbreaking company that has designed smart gait products that operate within a bio-informatics cloud for the healthcare industry.
Park With Me: An FDU student-led business model that will facilitate Hosts to rent out their private parking spaces to Users to earn extra income.

Once again, the TechLaunch BullPen has been supported with generous participation by the following sponsors who will donate approx. $20K of their time and expertise to the Investor Panel winner, KidGooRoo:
