BreezyPrint, who makes software that lets you print and fax from mobile devices, won the Grand Prize at the Founder Showcase in Mountain View last week. Jared Hansen, Founder and CEO of BreezyPrint, got the most votes from the sold out 315 person crowd and the majority vote of the Judging Panel, winning $2500 cash, a slot on stage at the Keiretsu Forum EXPO, a free 6 month trial to the Position2 Brand Monitor System, a $250 credit for a market research survey on AskYourTargetMarket.com, an HP Notebook Companion Projector, and a free ticket to BizTechDay San Francisco.
BreezyPrint is a graduate of the Founder Institute Silicon Valley Chapter. You can get a free trial at BreezyPrint.com, or watch the video of their winning pitch here;
Micromobs, a group messaging service, was the Runner-Up.
Mike Maples Jr. of FLOODGATE also gave a great speech on "Thunder Lizards" and business model pivots - a must watch for any first time entrepreneur. The video is below, and TechCrunch did a great write up here.
The next Founder Showcase will be scheduled for January, 2011. We will be announcing the final date and a limited number of half-priced tickets in the next few weeks - to get this update and keep track of the event, like us on Facebook.
