Victory – Even Sweeter the Second Time Around!


We thought that our business presentation victory at Google was wonderful, but we are even more excited to report to you that Lab Candy tasted sweet victory once again! 

Our most recent accolade came as part of the  “Demo Day” presentations at the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute.  At Demo Day, each of the venture teams participating in YEI’s summer fellowship program presents their business/products to an assembled group of YEI trustees, mentors, business leaders, and invited guests.   At the conclusion of the presentations, the audience members vote in a secret ballot for their favorite venture – “favorite” being defined by factors including most viable business idea, best presentation, capabilities of the team,  implementation, etc.  Needless to say, this is the big dog of presentations –  gladiatorial combat in the Coliseum, except instead of swords and tridents in Rome, our YEI teams where armed with spread sheets and power points in Kroon Hall in New Haven.  And Lab Candy was thrilled to tie for 1st place!  We are sharing the $10,000 first prize and have already plowed back that money into improving our product and launch.  So sweet!!!
