Celise BioProducts Wins Kilner Group 2019 YES

Washington, D.C. - Celise BioProducts (Celise) is this year's Kilner Group's Young Entrepreneur Scholarship recipient! Cameron Ross competed at the law offices of Drinker, Biddle and Reath LLP, who hosted the competition in December, 2018.

At the reception for the award, held in American University's Center for Innovation, Celise received an additional $2,000 from Invisible Hands, a sponsor of the event and a non-profit providing funds to Washington DC-area residents to meet immediate challenges and needs.

"I am extremely honored to receive this scholarship and humbled by the Invisible hand's generous donation - it was unexpected for me and I truly appreciate the extra help as I work on building Celise into a force for positive environmental change and business quality." Says founder, Cameron Ross.

We thank the Kilner Group for organizing an incredible competition for DMV-based start-ups and all of the affiliated sponsors that helped make this scholarship possible. You can read more about the competition at the link below:
