The Washington Post, in partnership with 1776, today announced Heartful.ly, a start-up offering wedding registry for charitable giving, as the winner of the millennial entrepreneur pitch contest at its inGENuitY 2015 Summit. The Heartful.ly platform builds elegant registries featuring real development projects — provided through partnerships with non-profit organizations in the U.S. and across five continents.
Hosted at The Washington Post today, December 2, the two-part pitch contest judged 10 semifinalist start-ups on their ability to succeed in providing scalable products or services that solve consumer problems in the education, energy, health, social impact, food and transportation industries. Today the 10 semifinalist millennial entrepreneurs pitched their businesses to a panel of business, policy and marketing expert judges who then selected five finalists and a competition winner. As the winner, Heartful.ly will receive a prize package including a 250K advertising credit from The Washington Post, membership in 1776, and other great contributions from sponsors.
