ICUBE Wraps up Summer Program with ICE2015 final Competition

On August 19th, five of I-CUBE’s startups competed in a pitch competition for cash and in-kind prizes. With a prize pool of $5,000 cash and $1,500 in-kind services from Pallett Valo, the five startups put it all on the table. A big thank you to all who came out to support the group – including the mentors, other teams, and judging panel. Hopefully the startups will take a well deserved summer break, but starting in September, it will be back to the I-CUBE space within the Institute of Management and Innovation to grow their businesses. Learn more about how to get involved with I-CUBE by exploring their programs, upcoming events and learning how they help students build startups.
