After reviewing applications and speaking with a varieties of Black, Latinx and Women founders throughout Chicago, we narrowed down our final selections to 3 companies. Our top 3 selections will pitch during our live virtual event on December 2nd, 2020. After being questioned by a panel of judges and investors, we'll announce who gets 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

LifeWeb 360- LifeWeb 360 helps grieving communities capture memories and support and one another—we’re building cemetery 2.0, which doesn’t remind you that your person died, it reminds you how they lived. Friends and family can share stories, photos, and videos that are organized to create context and meaning, and can also be turned into a physical memory book. It's like social media for the soul—a place to acknowledge and honor the meaningful in life, and begin to awaken our empathetic world. www.lifeweb360.com
