EUREKA! Pitch Night September 2019
We kicked off the 2019-2020 school year with our biggest EUREKA Pitch Night yet! Nine teams pitched - including two Stage 3 teams that got their start in the Hatchery 2018. We love to see the growth of our students' goals when they put in the time and dedication (And spoiler alert - they were both funded!). The remaining seven teams were all brand new ideas to the EUREKA! competition
Our guest judge was Lauren Farrell '13 (left below), who is the founder of Lauren Farrell NY, an exclusive, accessible luxury brand, proudly made in the USA, defined by "making your own rules in fashion and in life."
