Week two voting is closed, and four more companies are through to the final round.
Blue Ridge Networks, INDMEX Aviation, Unisys and R2M Innovations will have the opportunity to pitch their products at the Post’s 15th Street Northwest headquarters on April 29, and a single winner will be chosen for the safety and security category.
As part of the final competition, the companies will pitch their product in person, and the audience will narrow the field from four companies within the category to just two. Then, a panel of judges will select a single winner for each category.
Here are the finalists for the safety and security category, and their vote count as of 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 26. Next up, a competition among contenders for the health, education and energy category.
