July 23, 2010

Congratulations to all my fellow Babson Entrepreneurs!!  We got mentioned on tv yesterday at the press conference! 

Babson Entrepreneurs Make Finalist Stage of MassChallenge

Babson entrepreneurs, including undergrads, MBAs, and alumni, learned today that they have made it to the final round of the 2010 MassChallenge.

Babson finalists are:

•Day2Night Convertible High Heel Shoes – Candice Cabe
•Cocomama (formerly Evolve Foods) – Sara Gragnolati & Zachary DeAngelo
•LiveProud – Phil Tepfer
•ScholarPRO Inc. – Diane Melville
•Teleos Solar – Mike McGonigle
•ThikLite – Enrico Palmerino
•Zyrra – Derek Ohly
Being among the 110 finalists places them in the “Accelerator Stage.” Benefits at this level include office space, help with goals and prep for final pitches, and it means they will be matched with a mentor and a law firm.

MassChallenge has been launched as the world’s largest start-up competition. In the words of Gov. Deval Patrick, “Massachusetts is the destination for opportunity, growth, innovation, entrepreneurship and global leadership. The Commonwealth is a hub of innovation in the business, social and cultural arenas…It’s all here.”

Final winners will be announced at a ceremony on October 15, 2010.
