I can’t believe I am finished with my time at SEED SPOT! It was a whirlwind 3-months. Especially the last 2 weeks which were filled with nervousness and excitement as I prepared for Demo Day. Thoughts about pitching my business to a crowd of over 1,000 at the Orpheum Theatre gave me some sleepless nights, public speaking is not my favorite thing. But, I’ve learned that are often great rewards for overcoming our fears.
I am beyond thrilled to share that Celebrate Autism (now Celebrate EDU) was awarded the $25,000 grant from the Pakis Family Foundation. Thank you to Mom, Brent, Courtney, Mike, Scott, my cohort for your support and encouragement, my friends for coming out to watch, and especially Fred Pakis for believing in the potential of this organization!! If you’re interested, you can watch my pitch online.
