The CEO 3rd Annual Shark Tank event this Friday was so well attended that we had standing room only!  Thank you to everyone who came out to support, and especially CommonBond and Millennium Technology Value Partners for their sponsorship.

The event was a live pitch event featuring 3 finalists from each of the Concept and Developed stage categories.  Each team was asked insightful questions by our panel of distinguished judges: Delphine Braas ’14, Salio; Dan Burnstein, Millennium Technology Ventures; Robb Granado ’10, CommonBond; Chitra Narasimhan ’99, Citi Ventures; Conner Wilson ’15, Thursday Boot Company.

The lively pitches led to a break during which the judges deliberated, and the audience cast their vote for favorites.  After a close race, we were happy to announce the winners:

Audience Favorite Awarded $1000 each: HotSpot in concept category; and Kheyti in developed category.

Judges Vote Awarded $6000: HotSpot in concept category, and L&L Foods in developed category.

Thank you again to all the teams that participated: GlobalLend, HotSpot, and Mentifly in concept category; Crnsy, Kheyti, and L&L Foods in developed category.
