We are so excited about what Velocity is doing and their results that we have arranged to bring the entire group of current cohorts over to pitch at Tech on Tap.

Don't miss seeing what happens when you mix incredibly passionate innovative people and pressure cook them for 100 days.

Each of the cohorts will have an 8 minute pitch to our group. We will allow time at the end for audience questions.

We will be providing pizza along with a cash bar. You can order food from the menu before or after the meetup.

. Feel free to show up early to get your food ordered so you can get settled in for an exciting event.

Here is some background on the cohorts

GearBrake provides motorcyclist the reassurance that other drivers will be able to see them in time to avoid a rear-end collision. Motorcycles are able to rapidly slow down without using the brakes by downshifting and engine braking. While this is extremely effective in slowing down the bike, it does not light the brake lights to warn other drivers. GearBrake can sense the deceleration from slowing down and automatically flash the brake lights when downshifting, engine braking or standard braking, which has been proven to increase reaction times and reduce rear-end collisions.
