Two startups share top honors at VenturePitch at Babcock Ranch


    “The Price is Right” would have been proud.

    It was a night of showcases, with Southwest Florida’s budding startup community the top draw, with nearly 40 businesses on display and a room Thursday evening filled with entrepreneurs, angel investors and supporters.

    The second showcase: Babcock Ranch, the solar town taking shape in Charlotte County and the setting for the seventh VenturePitch SWFL, a “Shark Tank”-style event in which leaders of startup companies deliver their best pitches to a panel of judges and an audience.
