On Friday, June 13th, Küdzoo, a mobile app that rewards students for their academic achievements, teamed up with SLA Beeber to sponsor a pitch competition! The winner received $500 to kickstart their business.
A big congrats to Zoie Jones and Kevin Williams' business, Safe Haven, for winning the Küdzoo pitch contest! All participants did an incredible job & we can't wait to see where these young entrepreneurs take their ventures! Companies ranged from a nonprofit that has a solution for two problems: converting abandoned buildings into "safe havens" for the homeless. Another company looked to connect users who cannot communicate conventionally (service men and women with their families) by personalizing messages and pictures in a new and innovative way. While unorthodox skateboard company will bring affordable skateboards to market allowing anyone with the passion to enjoy the ride. Congrats students!
