Celise BioProducts Wins UGA Pitch Competition
[Athens, GA] - Celise BioProducts took home $25,000 at UGA's Terry College of Business Great Consumer Brand's Competition on Thursday, March 28. The event was held early in the morning where the finalist teams pitched to a group of judges, and the final three pitched in the evening to a large audience.
"I had an absolute blast competing here at UGA - I love the area and was beside myself when I was included in the top three. Hearing that I was going home with $5,000 regardless made me call our team and share that with them. Winning the competition enabled us to do what we had planned in three months' time the following week in terms of fulfilling orders and building inventory."
As part of the grand prize, Celise will be presenting at the Consensus Great Brand's Show held in New York City on Wednesday, September 25! Thank you to Creation Market Gardens and Consensus Advisers for making this competition possible.
