The 2016 BizLaunch winner, RaceIQ Engineering has now won the top prize at the inaugural PLUG ATL Pitch Competition.
According to UrbanGeekz, the Georgia-based startup, which focuses on the enhancement of hybrid-electric and alternative fuel vehicles, was presented with a $10,000 grand prize by an esteemed panel of judges at the Atlanta Symphony Hall of the Woodruff Arts Theatre.
Back in May, RaceIQ won TAG’s 11th annual BizLaunch Competition. As a result of that win, the startup received $50,000, a spot in Venture Atlanta, a marketing and promotions package from the Metro Atlanta Chamber and approximately $100,000 in donated services from the Atlanta business community to help them grow.
RaceIQ works directly with automakers so they can detect and mitigate vehicle data hacks, malware and virus uploads. The company bested 14 other startups in the final round of the competition.
