The Launch Place logo

The Launch Place received 129 applications for its 6th Annual Big Launch Challenge Pitch Competition from various start-up companies located in the U.S. and abroad. The top 10 competitors took the stage and presented their innovative business ideas in the Research Triangle Park, N.C., on Wednesday.

Winner of this year’s competition was Intake who was awarded a $15,000 cash prize. Intake is a digital health company that provides automatic daily health checkups with professional medical monitoring for proactive intervention. They do this by using patent-pending technology to measure health biomarkers from urine. Their connected device hangs over the toilet to automatically collect and test urine directly from the bowl with diagnostic level accuracy. Intake believes closing the feedback loop between lifestyle choice and health outcomes will empower people to make small course-correcting decisions that lead to improved long-term health outcomes.
