My oh my, victory is sweet.
Last week YEI (the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute) traveled to Google! We got a private tour around their NYC office space, a meet-and-greet with some awesome Googlers, and lunch. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures - you're just going to have to believe me when I tell you that they had an ENTIRE ROOM dedicated to the singular purpose of PacMan video games.
At the end of the day we gathered for a Google-hosted pitch competition. All participants gave a brief 3-minute pitch to a select group of Google staff, and the pitch was rated based on quality of presentation, idea, and business plan. Long story short...LabCandy got 2nd place!! We won some cash and a few other cool prizes, but mostly it was just an awesome experience. LabCandy got some great attention, and I'm excited to carry this momentum forward into Demo day this Thursday (AKA the day we pitch to the entire Yale/ New Haven entrepreneurial community!).
