The New York edition of Miller Lite’s Tap the Future regional competition was a phenomenal success. “Shark Tank” star Daymond John and Kenny Burns, the SVP of brand development for Combs Enterprises, brought the crowd to their feet when expressing how the Live Pitch tour is changing the lives of aspiring entrepreneurs, one investment at a time.
The winner of the night was Francisco Aguilar, CEO/CTO of Bounce Imaging, who presented to the co-founders of Swyft Media, along with John, an inventive aspect of technology and engagement that takes the social experience to the next level by showcasing 360-degree imaging devices that can be utilized by first responders.
Aguilar’s Buffalo, New York-based business took the $20K prize and will advance to the finals to compete and pitch a second time against five other regional winners for the Tap the Future competition grand prize of $100K to assist in fulfilling his startup dreams.
