Also, George Ahlering has qualified for the finals of SLU’s Angels in the Outfield competition. More than 100 people applied this year. He and nine other finalists will compete for cash prizes up to $2000. At the finals, he will pitch to investors from the outfield of the Gateway Grizzlies field with his presentation projected on the jumbotron. The event is on Sunday, April 24 at 3pm. More information about the event can be found here.
Priory students have been absolutely amazing competing at these entrepreneurship events. Since we’ve begun competing in these events 14 months ago, we’ve won one (2015 30-Day Challenge), gotten to the finals in two others (2015 SLU Escalator Pitch Challenge and 2016 Angels in the Outfield) and have yet to see if we’ll make the finals in the 4th one (2016 30-Day Challenge). Since two of those four competition are still in progress, by the end of this school year we could be 3 for 4 winning entrepreneurship competitions. In addition, the Christmas tree lot this year made a profit in just its first year! Congratulations to all of you for your hard work!
