PartPic wins laurels with 36|86 pitch

ATLANTA – PartPic, an Atlanta startup founded by former Google team member Jewel Burks, has won a pitch contest held as part of Nashville’s 36|86.

PartPic uses visual recognition software to simplify the task of searching for and purchasing replacement parts. Burks, a Nashville native, takes home a $36,000 award as winner. A total of 36 companies competed in the contest, all selected through three pitch contests held earlier this year.

Launch Tennessee, a public-private partnership fostering economic development, sponsored 36|86 as a successor to last year’s Southland conference for tech entrepreneurs.
