A couple weeks ago, we told you about the finalists for Gorham Savings Bank’s Launchpad competition, and today, we have a winner! Rockland-based organic chocolate bar maker Bixby & Co. took the competition’s $30,000 top prize, besting a field of 130 entries.
The goal of the Launchpad competition is to help new businesses take flight. Bixby & Co. was formed in 2011 to produce chocolate bars made with only organic or natural ingredients such as nuts, dried fruit and spices.
The four other finalists in the competition were Garbage To Garden, a Portland compost and fertilizer delivery concept, Peaks Island-based wallet maker Flowfold, Yarmouth-based outdoor mobile app developer Chimani, and Double Blue Sports Analytics, an Orono ports video analysis technology developer.
