Like so many, the pandemic pushed us to focus on a digital online solution. We could no longer rely on revenue from in-person events. Thanks to the generous grant provided by the Blueprint program, we were able to hire talented student developers, and are now set to launch the first version of our new digital product this season."

The most valuable aspect of this program is access to mentors. Being able to speak to other founders who have had the same struggles has been a great source of encouragement, experience, and knowledge."
