After qualifying for the finals back in February, we pitched again on March 9th and got 2nd place in the open division! The prize money will enable us to continue product development and to visit some trade shows this year.
The UNC Monfort College of Business E-challenge is an annual competition where 10 companies compete for a prize fund in 2 divisions. Slick Tools qualified for the finals in the open division alongside companies like GelSana and RD Flows (1st and 3rd place, respectively). The 1st place for the collegiate division went to Submission Nutrition, a nutrition provider by and for martial artists.
The E-challenge provided us with some great feedback on our pitch, and we met a lot of amazing entrepreneurs and advisors along the way.
So, what’s next for Slick Tools? We’re headed to Phoenix, AZ for the annual NABCEP Continuing Education trade show! We can’t wait to show off our tools and meet industry leaders face to face.
