Pitch to Win
A contest for small business owners that delivers big rewards

Congratulations Pitch to Win Winner, Alerje!

Alerje focuses on improving the lives of allergy sufferers. Founder Javier Evelyn, a lifelong food allergy sufferer, is working to solve the problem of patients and caregivers failing to carry their epipens (EAIs). Alerje’s IoT phone case holds a slim EAI that, when removed, alerts 911, parents and caregivers of a possible emergency. The company plans to use the grant from Nationwide to get the product to the market faster. For more information, visit alerje.com
