Just finished competing in another great pitch competition put on by the University of Georgia’s Entrepreneurship Program!
On Wednesday, Foxtail and 35 other teams from across the country were invited to UGA’s Athens campus to participate in a pitch competition for early-stage companies. After a nice evening of hors d’oeuvres and drinks we took to the stage and gave our pitch. When it came time for the winners announcement, we were honestly a little disappointed to find out we came in second! Only first place got to take home some sweet prize money. But, to our surprise, the judges announced that they had liked our pitch and business model so much that they had decided to pool together $1,500 of their own money to give us as a prize! How crazy is that?
Thank you to all the judges for your amazing generosity, and the many volunteers that made this event possible – it was inspiring to see so many people wholeheartedly pursuing their companies and ideas. Go Dawgs!
