TechCrunch recently hosted its Boston Pitchoff, giving eight startup finalists a chance to pitch their businesses in front of a panel of VCs and tech journalists. Clique Chic — a website that gives members access to designer clothes and a personal stylist — won the competition and will advance to the final Disrupt NY competition later this spring.
The competition boasted healthcare wearables, social networking apps, gamified education tools, and even a foray into personalized medicine. Amidst this heavy competition, Clique Chic demonstrated that it’s the business model — not the buildup — that makes a startup successful.
