Congrats to Gillian Morris and Luka Kladaric, co-founders of Hitlist, the second finalists for the Women 2.0's PITCH Competition. By Jordan Hunter (Editorial Intern, Women 2.0)
Our online judges have been busy reviewing all of the PITCH applications, with our conference now just seven weeks away!
PITCH finalists will be competing on stage for prize packages that would make any entrepreneur swoon!
Today we are excited to announce our second PITCH finalist Hitlist.
Hitlist is a mobile app that allows users to add travel destinations to their own personalized travel wishlist. Hitlist then alerts users via email about the lowest airfare deals on the internet that are available for their selected destinations. Hitlist inspires users with beautiful travel photography, connects them with fellow travelers in their network and allows them to save money while booking their dream trips!
