Last year, when North Central College junior found out through ConVerge about the Future Founders U.Pitch National College Elevator Pitch Competition & Showcase, he decided to check it out. Instantly, he knew that he wanted to pitch his business idea for Moe Mow's Lawn Care the next year.
On November 15, 2018, Moe competed as one of 18 semifinalists, chosen among the top collegiate entrepreneurs across the country. They convened at 1871, Chicago's Center for Technology & Entrepreneurship, where they showcased their businesses in an expo format, and delivered 90-second pitches for a portion of the $10,000 prize pool.
Moe won $250 of the prize pool, voted by the audience as the People's Choice Award.
