Dublin-based startup Coroflo has been crowned the winner of the Virgin Media Business Voom Tour mini-pitch competition this week at TechConnect Live in the RDS.
Coroflo has developed a revolutionary breastfeeding assistance monitoring system and app that helps mothers monitor the milk flow to their baby. This then allows the mother to see details of how much breast milk their baby has consumed each time they feed.
As the winner, the company walked away with 6,000 on the day and Coroflos CEO Rosanne Longmore will get to meet and discuss the company with Richard Branson later this year over brunch.
Coroflo was up against five other startups at the competition, all pitching aboard the Voom Tour double decker bus.
Voom Pitch is the UK and Irelands biggest business pitching competition. Last year, Irish company FoodCloud reached the VOOM finale with Richard Branson, finishing in a fantastic second place, securing the company 25,000, a Virgin Media Business broadband package, mentoring and brand support.
Paul Farrell, Vice President of Commercial, Virgin Media Business, added: Coroflo are very impressive and an extremely worthy winner. The overall talent on show here today has been truly exceptional. Competitions such as this couldnt come at a better time for Irish businesses or entrepreneurs as its an entirely merit based programme which allows the most innovative, disruptive and original business concepts to rise to the top.
The next stop on the Voom Tour is in Belfasts St. Georges Market on June 6th and 7th.
