THANK YOU everyone for making this event a huge success! 

We were full house with a waiting list.

The energy, the excietment, and the fresh air of innovation we experienced that evening would not have been possible without all our guests, volunteers, coaches, judges, speakers, finalists, sponsors and partners.   

See you next year!
