Over the past two weeks, Future Founders hosted competitions for our Ignite schools so students could showcase the business plans they created during the school year. From each school’s competition, judges selected 2-4 plans to advance to the Future Founders finalist pool.
After reviewing the high caliber finalists, we are pleased to announce the 17 finalists that will be featured at the first annual Future Founders adVENTURE Expo. This trade show meets entrepreneurship competition will take place on Wednesday, May 11 at TechNexus.
This year’s competition will consist of each student creating an interactive station for attendees to visit to hear their 30 second pitch and interactive demo of their product or service created over the course of the school year.
At this point, we’d like to announce and congratulate our 2016 CITYWIDE FINALISTS:
