Meet The Finalists:

Sweet Logic

Sweet Logic is a female and Hispanic owned cake mix company serving the ketogenic and diabetic communities. In 2017, Alli was struggling with hormonal imbalances. At the same time, Matt's dad had recently passed from cancer so he was researching anti-cancer diets. They both stumbled upon the keto diet and decided to give it a try. Within days of starting keto, they discovered the lack of sweet treats available for those on low carb lifestyles. By 2018, Sweet Logic was founded and their first product, a keto-friendly mug cake mix hit the market!


Patterbar is a family-owned, Denver-based company founded in 2018 by Patter Gersuk, a classically trained chef and entrepreneur. Patterbars are hand-crafted, whole food energy bars with no added sugar, no "natural flavors", no preservatives, and no powders, binders, or fillers. We source Medjool dates from California, and tart, dried Montmorency cherries from Michigan. Unlike other bars, our cherries, like our dried Oregon blueberries, have no added sugar, juice, or oil, and our oats are non-GMO and gluten-free. We juice and zest our lemons and ginger by hand, roast our nuts without oil and salt and make our own nut butters.

Green Belly Foods

Green Belly started when Juan shared his mother’s traditional Guatemalan hot sauce. Maria del Carmen’s home-made hot sauces instantly became a hit with Juan’s friends. They were blown away by the unique cilantro, garlic and habanero blend. The sauce is so fresh and tasty that Juan was bombarded with requests. Eventually his friends convinced him to start selling at the local farmer’s markets. So he opened up a tent at the market, people loved it and his business has been growing ever since!

Mad Lemon

MadLemon began as a small market stand called Cowgirl Lemonade intitially focusing on Denver, and spreading into the whole front range. We offered maple sweetened, seasonal, fresh fruit, vegetable, and herbal flavored, lemonades and teas. We started offering these fresh beverages mixed with spirits last year and decided that we had a responsibility to offer this delicious and unique product to the world, as a canned cocktail. We are in the process of developing a line of six MadLemon cocktails with plans to release them locally in the front range this winter, opening up to other states within the following year and from there, taking over the world! Elevating the way people drink home cocktails, we aspire to encourage and inspire each individual to love, enjoy, engage, connect, and embrace the open and spontaneous nature of their lives, with every sip! Live madly, MadLemon.
