Seattle's TomboyX prove they are winners at National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Biz Pitch Competition

WASHINGTON, D.C. - At one time, calling a woman a tomboy might have been an insult, but an LGBT-certified business embraced it and ended up taking home the top prize in the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce's Biz Pitch Competition.

TomboyX, a Seattle-based start-up clothing company, creates underwear, t-shirts and other items that help self-proclaimed tomboys express who they are. The fashion line appeals to all women who have never been comfortable in traditional feminine clothes and didn't want to dress like men.

The two-year-old company won a check for $10,000 against two other start-ups in a shark tank-like contest. TomboyX also will receive a $20,000 brand-positioning package from BRANDING FOR THE PEOPLE.

The competition took place at NGLCC's 2015 International Business & Leadership Conference last summer. The judges were: CNN's Richard Quest; NGLCC co-founder and CEO Chance Mitchell; and globally-renowned venture capital and business advisor Shereen Shermak.

'We thank NGLCC for giving us this boost that will really accelerate our growth plans, as well as supporting our upcoming road tour. Even before we won, we felt like winners because of the new business contacts we met at the NGLCC conference. The majority of our investors are women, and we are a woman and lesbian owned and operated business. NGLCC is exactly what our underwear is for our customers - a perfect fit,' says Fran Dunaway, CEO and founder.

The NGLCC conference is the largest LGBT business development event in the world and brought together more than 800 LGBT and allied entrepreneurs, business owners, corporate representatives and LGBT chamber leaders from across the country and around the globe. Attendees took part in three days of symposia, panel discussions, development seminars, and special events designed to generate business opportunities and build strong relationships with corporate champions and one another.

The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is the business voice of the LGBT community and is the largest global not-for-profit advocacy organization specifically dedicated to expanding economic opportunities and advancements for LGBT people. NGLCC is the exclusive certification body for LGBT owned businesses.
