The CSUDH Innovation Summit celebrates socially-conscious startups with pitch competitions for both for-profit and non-profit companies. Wana joined nine exceptional finalists for three competitions: “All Comers” For-Profit Fast Pitch, Non-Profit vs. For-Profit Pitch-off, and the People’s Choice. We were honored with all three titles!
Standing ovation to Dr. Pooch, winner of the Non-Profit division, who is making healthy food cool for kids with a rhythmic, rhyming book and video series. Erin met the challenge of her competitor – who performed his pitch as a rap – with an improvised Broadway/country ode to babysitting exchanges … sorry, folks, no video of that one! Also to Melissa Scott of Modefywear, runner up in the All Comers division, for her innovation of conservative dress for active and athletic women.
