A special thanks go to all the incredible mentors and judges from Entrepreneurship at Cornell who made this possible, including all of our Cornell eLab Accelerator mentors (Todd Zion Delia Hughes Ken Rother Steven Gal Tom Schryver), Kathi Durdon, MA, CCRP from CNYBAC for her constant support, and of course, to our CFO, Julia Isakov for her awesome pitch!
2. We have been selected for the Verizon and CGI U 2021 Social Innovation Challenge and will be receiving mentorship and Stage 1 funding as part of VentureWell’s E-Team program. Thank you to Clinton Global Initiative, Verizon, and VentureWell for this opportunity!
3. We recently completed the #LaunchPadFellowship. A special thanks to Blackstone LaunchPad & Techstars, Techstars, and Future Founders for helping accelerate our progress and milestones!
