September 14, 2018 It was a great night for ProxyPics as we placed in third place at IHCC’s Make the Connection Small Business Pitch night.
The night started with a food, drinks, and networking. The event was hosted by Victoria Nones of Satira. She introduced the night’s speakers, Kelley Francis and James Gilliam. Francis is the interim president and CEO of the Illinois Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. James Gilliam is the vice president of Community and Economic Development at Fifth Third Bank.
The pitch night then began as the seven top companies pitched their ideas to the judges. The judges were Matt Gambs of Wintrust Financial, Micae Brown of Micae Brown Report, and Steven Escobar of Fifth Third Bank. After the all the companies completed their pitched the judges deliberated. ProxyPics placed in third place, followed by Cleancio in second, and CabDash taking home first prize.
ProxyPics would like to thank the entire IHCC community for the support and the judges of the night for awarding ProxyPics.
