2nd Place @ Heller Startup Challenge
Newsphere placed 2nd out of nine teams competing in the Heller School Social Enterprise Startup Challenge pitch competition at Brandeis University. The event took place over a three day span from October 18th-20th. Over those three days we refined our business plan, updated our slidedeck, and practiced our pitch. On Sunday evening we pitched to a panel of 5 judges from various industries ranging from legal services to financial consultants. As a result of coming in 2nd place, we earned $500 to use towards expanding Newsphere!
