EUREKA! Pitch Night February '19
EUREKA! Pitch Nights continue to see brand new startup talent each month. We had seven new teams out of eight pitch on February 28.
Our two judges were no strangers to Baker or entrepreneurship. Jamie Flinchbaugh '94 is the founder of both JFlinch and Old DutchGroup. Previously he co-founded the Lean Learning Center, and he has helped build nearly 20 other companies as either a co-founder, board of directors member, advisor, or angel investor. Wayne Barz '87 is the Entrepreneurial Services manager at Ben Franklin Technology Partners, located on Mountaintop Campus.
