"Exemplary startups" chosen for this competition will compete for the $100,000, equity-free prize. 20 winners will be chosen from the 200 competitors.
Sober Space offers a curated list of sober-friendly spots and activities wherever you travel, promoting an "alcohol-free lifestyle." The app is available in the App Store and on Google Play.

We could not be more thrilled about helping bring sobriety to the forefront of the tech space.” Dordick also mentions that the app targets an underserved market of about $736B.
