Happy New Year!
Can you believe it is 2022 already? I hope that you were able to get some much needed R&R and recharge for the upcoming year ahead. We are not wasting any time – our next cohort of OnRamp begins on January 20th and will be led by Founder-in-Residence John Possumato. Applications are now open! Please visit the link here to sign up, and please spread the word to anyone who may be interested.
OnRamp Cohort #3 hosted by Founder-in-Residence Jessie Garcia wrapped on December 16th with our quarterly pitch competition. (If you missed it, you can watch the video here). We would like to give a big round of applause to all of our participants – it was a very tough competition.
Congratulations to our winners:
1st place $5,000: Lofty Spot
2nd place $2,500: Legesher
3rd place $1,500: Aula Future
All of our winners recieved a PACT Mentor Connect Membership as well as an ic@3401 Membership.
