Marshall and I took part in the University of Northern Colorado’s Entrepreneurial Challenge last week, pitching Slick Tools LLC to a panel of judges. We focused our presentation on the Animal Guard Bender, but also shared our vision for a full line of solar-specific tools. In the end, we were able to secure a spot in the finals!
There are two divisions in the competition: the collegiate division and an open division. In the finals on March 9th, all teams from both divisions will compete against each other for a share of $25,000.
We had some interesting contestants in the open division. GelSana Therapeutics has invented a gel that heals wounds faster, and Sarus Lifting is working on a construction logistics app. Four companies from each division made it to the finals, so we’ll have our work cut out for us!
Regardless of the outcome, the E-challenge was a great experience for Marshall and me, and we’re stoked to pitch again.
