Bridgit Wins Google for Entrepreneurs’ Women’s Demo Day

Bridgit won Google’s most recent demo day.

The Waterloo-based startup took top prize at Google for Entrepreneur’s inaugural Demo Day: Women’s Edition.

The Canadian company was founded by Lauren Hasegawa and Mallorie Brodie.

Google for Entrepreneurs received 450 applications from over 40 countries. Bridgit was among the 11 female-led startups invited to Silicon Valley for the pitch competition. It was the only Canadian company to make the finals.

The judges said Bridgit had “great traction elements,” a “very systematic sales process,” and a “clear go-to-market approach.”

Bridgit was a 2013 Canadian Startup Awards nominee in the Accelerator Gradudate of the Year category and last week Brodie penned a guest article for Techvibes titled Three Things to Be Aware of When Pitching Your Canadian Startup to US Investors.
