Arvo is excited to announce today that it took home first place at the Founders Live Nashville Prime Time Pitch Challenge.

When they announced my name, I was so overwhelmed with joy and high-fives from everyone around me that I didn’t even hear Taylor Duncan, COO of NXT Level and MC for the evening, ask me to come on stage. I’ve made so many new friends and connections through this event. I am so thankful for having the opportunity to be a part of it.

Nashville’s NXT Level hosted the event which is currently in more than 60 cities nationwide and 30 countries globally. It places five handpicked companies in the hot seat, with only 99 seconds to pitch their company, describe their value, and participate in a Q&A session in front of a live audience that votes for the winner. As the winner of the Nashville competition, Arvo was awarded $10,000 in Amazon AWS Credits, as well as the opportunity to continue on to compete in a future Founders Live Prime Time global event. Arvo competed against Deanna Meador of Couture Technologies, Jessica Walker of Care Sherpa, Paul Bradley of GetHedge, and Mark Hilton, Ph.D. of Optomar Technologies.

“Last night, the NXT Level team wrapped up the year for Founders Live #Nashville for the year,” said a NXT Level spokesperson.  “We had an amazing group of entrepreneurs present their companies and hard work representing technology in the fintech, healthcare, company operations, and fashion sectors. Every single one of these founders could have won. We were blown away by all of them.”

From Atlanta to Nashville, it seems like everywhere we turn, we are hearing about Arvo, the SaaS platform for visual documentation, and for good reason. Today’s win is just one of many accolades the rapidly growing company has received this year. Since Arvo’s launch earlier this year, it has taken First in Crowd Favorite at Nashville Entrepreneur Center Panel & Pitch: Tech Edition 2022 and was a Top 5 Finalist in Nashville’s Startup Showdown at 3686.

Next up, Arvo founder Alane Boyd will be pitching at the Start Here Competition in Cookeville, Tenn. on Nov 17. As a winner of the pitch competition, Boyd will also be interviewed on the Founders Live Podcast by the founder of Founders Live, Nick Hughes. The episode will air in early 2023.
