It was an exciting 2-day adventure we had in the Big Apple last week. Choosito! was one of the 11 finalists in the Education category of the Challenge CUP NYC 2014. The winner of the competition will go to the global finals in Washington, DC in Spring 2015. The Challenge Cup is a competition held in 16 cities around the world for start-ups that solve “the biggest challenges” in Education, Energy, Health, and Cities.
During the two-day event, we met with other exciting start-ups and their cool teams and we had the wonderful opportunity to have one-to-one mentoring sessions with big and experienced companies. A big thank-you to the organizers and the great mentors that coached us.
We were disappointed that we were not selected to go to DC but we will have another opportunity in Spring. The Challenge Cup organizers hold a few posts to give to companies that were not selected during the competition but showed amazing progress between now and the global finals.
I want Choosito! to be one of these companies and I hope we will make it. I love the K-12 community who does not only inspire innovation but appreciates it and is ready to support it.
