​​​​​​​​​Hello everyone, 

Tonight we had 9 teams from all over Bay Area, Northern California come together and compete for the cash Grand Prizes of $400, $200, $100, and $40, along with other sponsor awards. They've come together at Sofia University to present their final pitch in 10 minutes, while also taking 10 minutes to defend their product.

I cannot express my happiness well enough about tonight's conference. Thank you all for your support and encouragement in giving your student's the experience of a lifetime! Congratulations to EVERY SINGLE TEAM tonight! All of you are already winners, and even the judges told me the had an extremely hard time trying to decide on which teams to pick. I hope that all the students learned something from this experience, and thank you all for your support! We couldn't have done this without you, and never forget the inner entrepreneur you all have inside and continue to work hard to achieve your dreams!
