Launching Las Vegas 2018 Was Record-Breaking—And We’re Excited to Announce Our First-Ever Tie!

This year’s Launching Las Vegas contest was a whirlwind, with a record number of votes, tons of community engagement, and three stellar, woman-owned businesses rallying support. In its fourth year, Launching Las Vegas truly wanted to hone in on what makes Vegas so special, and this year’s selected local businesses exemplify the unique, hardworking spirit of our community.

The public agreed, as hundreds of votes poured in for all three candidates: The Sweat Store, a female-owned and operated active and athleisure retailer that helps women feel empowered, bold, and sexy, Freedom Deodorant, a provider of natural, aluminum-free luxury deodorants that really work; and Sin City Cupcakes, a bakery specializing in both alcoholic and virgin cupcakes, expertly baked fresh-to-order.

And the winners are…

Every day for three weeks, supporters of our nominees faithfully cast their votes. The rules allowed for each person to vote once per day—and vote they did.

We tallied the results from all eligible votes, checked them twice, and were thrilled to see our first-ever, three-way tie. That’s right, the tally was within a miniscule margin of error and, rather than going into multiple recounts, we decided on a win-win-win!

Hearty congratulations from us to all three of our winners—as well as gratitude for their participation in the contest and devotion to our town. We wish each of them much success.

We would also like to thank the community for showing up in support of these local businesses doing amazing things. Cheers to another awesome Launching Las Vegas!
