Congratulations to Fullbay for winning Venture Madness 2018! So, who is Fullbay?

In addition to the overall champion Fullbay, there were three other division winners at the southwest’s premier startup pitch event where dozens of companies competed for $50,000.

  • Fullbay, Arizona, SaaS scale division
  • Janiis, Utah, SaaS launch division
  • Seek, Utah, deep tech division
  • Swift Coat, Arizona, hardware division

Fullbay joins previous Venture Madness winners Clean Router, NuvOx Pharma, Campus Logic, Pinnacle Transplant, and others. But looking just a little past the winners reveals other great #yesphx startups.

Companies like Allbound, Brettapproved, eVisit, IrisPR, Picmonic, ReplyBuy, and ZCast fell short in past Venture Madness events but seem to be doing pretty damn well anyway.

So, let’s applaud our 2018 winners for a well-earned win. Fullbay, Janiis, Seek, and Swift Coat … y’all rock!

Now, let’s take a look at eight SaaS scale-ups on the verge of big things. Keep reading …
