FlashFood Pitches to CEO of World’s Largest NGO

Yesterday, I had the amazing opportunity to tell the story of FlashFood to Susan Davis, the Founder and CEO of Brac USA. Brac is the world’s largest nongovernmental organization, employing 100,000 and reaching over 126 million people with its services. The organization focuses on empowering disadvantaged communities around the world by offering services in microfinance, agriculture and food security, women’s rights and advocacy, social enterprise support, and many others. After the pitch,  I was also lucky receive some valuable feedback from Susan about how we can continue to improve FlashFood and expand more rapidly to other communities outside of Phoenix.

It was also great to get updates on fellow ASU Edson students’ companies who also pitched at the event, including G3Box, Vantage Realized, Pollentech, and SunSelect. It’s always an awesome experience when so many smart and talented people meet to share ideas and give advice!

FlashFood Receives second ASU Innovation Challenge Award!

ASU Innovation Challenge

Last night, we had the honor of accepting a $3,500 award from the 2013 Arizona State University Innovation Challenge. This competition means a lot to us. Last year, we received our first ever batch of start-up funding ($2,000) from the challenge and were given valuable advice from judges that helped shape what FlashFood is today. We are grateful for the continued support from ASU Changemaker, Arizona State University, and others in our community. Also, congratulations to all of the other student entrepreneurs! We are sure that you will go on to accomplish great feats.
