Validation and Victory
In the last blog post I told you that we'd be moving to the second round of the Inland Northwest Business Plan Competition. Over spring break, we had our final presentation to a panel of judges and professionals in the field, and I'm proud to announce that not only did we win $1000 (going towards travel costs), but we also won the Social Enterprise Award! This award is given to teams who make a large positive impact, environmentally, socially or otherwise. It should be noted that we were selected from among high schoolers, college students and adults!
Haley, John and Alex were there to present our product to a panel of judges that included: marketers, financial consultants, professors, VC's and entrepreneurs. We had the excellent opportunity to receive constructive criticism from these experts. Moving forward we have a very clear idea of how to further the Rocket Stove+.
