Over the past 10 years, the Entrepreneur Challenge has given over $1 million and has awarded over 40 teams which now have a total combined valuation of $1.2 Billion. This is a challenge where the competition’s top 6 companies will compete in High Tech, Life Tech, and CleanTech tracks to win up to $50K in prizes.
Due to AgilisIT’s specialty in life sciences technology, our CEO Joyce Tang had the experience and expertise to sit among a small panel of judges who are from life sciences and technological backgrounds. Companies that were present were involved in clean technology, high technology and life technology.
When asked about her thoughts on the companies, Joyce said “We had many companies and many had wonderful solutions. Some of them have already made great strides in their technical development and fund raising. Many of them are very promising. I thoroughly enjoyed judging the event and I can’t wait to see who wins at the final gala on May 24th!”
