Their win marks four years in a row that an Ithaca startup has won this event:
A major part of the reason for this trend is that we all help each other. The Sound Reading guys practiced and drilled on getting their presentation precise and their business plan right. Whether it was refining the look and order of the slides, working on getting the presentation under the 7-minute time limit, practicing for the question & answer portion, or working out what to wear and where to stand - they covered everything.
Next year's prize is $300,000! I know of a handful of Ithaca entrepreneurs who are already gunning for it. Who wants to win $300K?
