The tenth and final company to make it onto the Las Vegas PITCH stage is Totspot!
By Jessica Stillman (Editor, Women 2.0)
With our Las Vegas conference just around the corner, we’re thrilled to announce that Totspot will be the tenth and final company that will be pitching live on stage as part of our PITCH Competition. Congratulations to co-founders Mei Siauw, Vikrant Ramteke and Vijay Ramani!
The company is focused on a universal problem for parents -- kids grow. That’s great, of course, but also means finding and buying new clothes and toys for each new developmental stage. Totspot aims to make that easy. A mobile marketplace for parents to discover, buy and sell new and like-new kids items such as toys, clothes, baby gear and books, Totspot hopes to offer parents a joyful shopping experience right on their smartphone -- as well as making selling on the site incredibly easy. Totspot iPhone app will be released in limited beta in the Bay Area in November.
