Some very quick updates:
1. We got second place at the Fordham Business Plan Competition! One of the Pictures is me and Erika (who was physically present) rehearsing just a few hours before the final round of pitches. Very serious faces.
We won: $2,500 in prize money and $7000 in Accounting, business dev, and Legal services. Hoorah!
JeepneED was also a finalist in BiD (Business for International Development) though we didn't take home a financial prize, we're excited by the connections we made through out the day.
2. Many thanks to Purple Yam, the venue for a JeepneED Friendraiser a few months back. I highly recommend a visit! The food was so good I needed to be a little more animated in my story telling to keep everyones attention between the "yummmmm"s
Erika and I still need to get get better at organizing fundraisers, and maintaining a JeepneED presence there (US) while we're all the way over here(RP). Get in touch if you want to lend a hand.
3. We've been live streaming jeepneED construction here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/jeepneed-construction you can find recordings there as well. Here's a summary video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnPGhNa63DI
4. We'll be bringing home the finished JeepneED cab to our home office on Firday - Hoorah! It's Thursday evening to many of you - and will be sure to film a tour of it.
Launching the JeepneED road trip on July 8. More updates to come. Thank you thank you thank you so much for all your support.
