Silicon Slopes Startup Competition
At the Silicon Slopes Startup Competition this year, more than 100 companies pitched their products to win $250,000 in seed funding from Kickstart Seed Fund. Axon Optics CEO, Ben Rollins, ended up winning the competition and will also have a chance to compete and win an investment prize of $1 million in San Francisco at the Startup World Cup Finals in May.
Christensen, the founder of Kickstart Seed Fund says all of the judges were extremely impressed with Axon Optics’ product.
