It was great to catch up with Nkese Applewhite from Oshun Undies and hear her progress on her cleverly designed Cachet Pump and Nurse Bra. I first saw Nkese pitch this back in March at the Merrimack Valley Sandbox(now known as EforAll). She's working on getting manufacturing going, so look for this practical and stylish bra in 2015.

Another product that caught my attention was True Moringa moisturizing oil. The Moringa tree grows in tropical regions, is drought resistant, and its leaves are highly nutritious. This puts it in the forefront of the fight against malnutrition. My Mom had 50 Moringa trees planted in my name for my 50th birthday, so I was interested to hear about MoringaConnect's work with their network of smallholders in Ghana. Check out their website.
Once again, I didn't get a chance to talk to everybody. The ones I didn't make it to were: Gradberry, a website that helps young grads get the skills they need for the competitive job market, Propel to Go, a tool for targeting lost leads from your ad campaign, and job search site FirmPlay.
