On Saturday, TiE Atlanta hosted the final rounds of their TYE University Entrepreneurship Competition. We were one of six teams invited to present to a panel of judges from across the United States. After a grueling three rounds, we were finally able to bring home a giant check! We’d like to extend a huge thank you to Dr. Paul Lopez (pictured on the left) and Steven Cook (pictured on the right) for all the work that they put into this competition. We’d also like to extend another big thank you to Greg Cory, our mentor who helped us draft and refine our business plan for the first round of the competition!
This marks the end of our journey through the pitch competition circuit. It was an incredible learning experience, and it has been instrumental in refining our product and business model. Over the course of these three months of competition we’ve made incredible connections both personally and professionally, had thousands watch as Justin ate 8 cheeseburgers (and one croissant) on stage, and had the honor of being named a finalist or prizewinner in every competition we presented at!
