Company founded by Purdue students wins pitch competition

Oct 29, 2012

A company located in the Purdue Research Park is earning national recognition.

FoundOPS took first place in the first-ever Startup Bowl at the Powder Keg Conference in Indianapolis last week.

The competition featured 12 companies from around the country who pitched their ideas before a panel of judges at Lucas Oil Stadium.

FoundOPS was started by two Purdue students last year out of a room in their fraternity house.

They developed a mobile app for small field-service companies that incorporates GPS technician tracking, drag and drop dispatching, and intuitive customer service management.

The company received $15,000 for first place and will use the money to enhance marketing and sales.
