Remember the Member, an app designed to help people remember each others’ names in social networking situations, won first place in the Tech/App StartUp Series competition Wednesday evening.
Evan Tipton and Will Edwards, founders of the startup, received $2,500 from the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation to advance their business, free admission to the venture assessment program at i2E — Innovation to Enterprise, three months’ free membership to business incubator 36 Degrees North and weekly meetings with a mentor for three months.
Tipton and Edwards have patented their product and plan to sell it to a social network such as LinkedIn or Facebook.
The StartUp Series, the new format for what used to be the StartUp Cup, is put on by Tulsa Community College and the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation. The competition Thursday was at 36 Degrees North, the startup incubator at 36 E. Cameron St. in the Brady Arts District.
