MakeOffices represented at the Startups Ignite signature pitch competition and supported the Northern Virginia startup ecosystem. There was a great, excited crowd in attendance featuring venture capitalists, advisers, and service providers. Some of the startups who pitched included:
- Stitchflow, a mobile app designed to create and share video tutorials
- Ergonometrix, technology to reduce lower back injuries in the workplace
- NativeTalk, an app that pairs English language learners with native English speakers
- Feedback Golf, a golf training solution that uses your smartphone to record your golf swing
