Two Southern Indiana startups took home wins during a regional pitch competition last week. Moxie Girl and Total MINDCARE will now move on to the Venture Club of Indiana's statewide competition, the Innovation Showcase, in August.

Moxie Girl, a company aiming to empower girls, won a place at the statewide competition along with a marketing and communications planning session from RunSwitch PR.

Total MINDCARE, an online mental health company designed to provide broad access to better mental healthcare, also recieved a spot to pitch at the statewide competition and a strategic planning session with two entrepreneurs-in-residence at Elevate Ventures.

“Several great companies shared the stage with Total MINDCARE, and I am grateful to the judges for believing in our vision of improving mental healthcare,” said Timothy Ramsey, founder and chief executive officer of Total MINDCARE, in a news release.

 David Kerr from Allos Ventures, Nick Arnett from the 1517 Fund and Kyle Keeney from Elevate Ventures judged the contest.
