Indoor-mapping startup from Kentucky takes home the People's Choice Award

BuildingLayer, founded by Nick Such and Brian Raney, came in No. 1 for the People's Choice Award at our Vator Splash event back in September. BuildingLayer makes a very slick and cool indoor map. The company has already made significant inroads into the hospital market. Kudos to the team, and CEO Nick Such for being a solid presenter.  

Watch Nick give his winning presentation and field questions from VC judges David Blumberg (Blumberg Capital), Noah Doyle (Javelin Venture Partners), Richard Hsu (King & Spalding LLP), Brian Jacobs (Emergence Capital) and Cindy Padnos(Illuminate Ventures). Ezra Roizen of Ackrell Capital acted as emcee.
