Pitch Competition Winners
Winners of the pitch competition will be paired with a successful female founder to mentor and guide their ideas into reality. The pairs will work together over the following five months through our mentorship program at www.sheleads.io (free of cost).
At the end of the five months, mentors will set up a pitch meeting between their student and an angel investor for a seamless transition to launch.
Participants with stand-out technology solutions will have the chance to launch their product directly with Kinect Consulting, a leading emerging technologies firm…and if it takes off, have a percentage of proceeds applied toward your college tuition!
