What was it like to receive the notification about being Top 26?
Realizing that we had been selected as a final 26 team was unbelievably rewarding. It really gave us the feeling of satisfaction, but also while it was a great reward after a summer of hard work, it wasnt long before we realized we had to get right back to putting our heads down with work and continuing to accelerate down the path to achieving our lofty goals! –Dean Travers, Luminopia
Spettacolare! It was a great honor to be able to move forward to the final judging considering that the Top 128 at MassChallenge Boston are very promising businesses. At the early stage of each business is fundamental to receive feedback from experienced successful entrepreneurs, such as the Pre-Final judges. Knowing that we were going to receive additional feedback from a great list of Final judges was the most valuable part of advancing to the final. Right after the nominee to be part of the Top 26 companies, we have received several emails and phone calls from people interested to know moreabout Electra (potential investors and customers). Thanks MassChallenge for all this traction! Once again, spettacolare! – FabrizioMartini, Electra Vehicles
What about the MassChallenge Awards are you most looking forward to?
I am most looking forward to delivering our pitch in front of everyone! – Joshua Martin, 3DFortify
Im excited to feel the energy and pitches from the other founders All 128 finalists have been so inspiring this whole term. –Alfred Griffin, Signature Orthodontics
Spending time with our team celebrating our accomplishments. We spentevery day focused on growing our business, that even when we go out, we find a way to talk about work. The ceremony will be a chance to bring everyone together along with their significant others and enjoy a wonderful night. – Patrick Boyaggi, RateGravity
We are most excited to see the other startups pitch. We have blown away by the caliber of talent at MassChallenge and it’s great to have an opportunity to celebrate our peers’ accomplishments. – Kendall Tucker, Polis
Aside from your own pitch, is there another startup you’re looking forward to seeing pitch at #MCAwards16?
I am actually extremely interested in all of them as I don’t know enough about any of them so looking forward to getting a very quick intro to them & then being able to chat with them more about it that night & beyond. Find it fascinating & because we have been working so hard on FW, we haven’t always been able to get to know the other participants in MC & their businesses as much as we would like. So this is a very nice way to get a quick intro to all!– Max Easton, Farmer Willie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer
Everyone is so different. One of the things I most appreciate about MC is the diversity of companies and the problems they are solving – getting to hear pitches outside of our area is always fun. – Jason Kahn, Neuromotion Labs
Excited yet? We hope you are. There’s still plenty of time to secure your ticket to #MCAwards16.
