"This event was an unexpected delight, fun, challenging, focused, and informative. The mentors and organizers were generous with their time and expertise, and the pitch in and out of the event is better as a result. Best of all, of course, is that interest from a number investors has surfaced from unexpected places as a result of our appearance at the event."
- Christy Joiner, Founder and CEO, Stics, Inc.

 "This event was excellent all around but I was especially glad to learn about and meet real Angels. Hearing from the angel judges and meeting real angels at the mixer was just what I needed to perfect my own pitch."
- John Spirko, Fit for Green
