Last night Don Bosco Prep and the Leonidas Foundation presented the L.E.O. Program's first annual IronWorks Shark Tank Competition! Members of the first L.E.O. cohort have been working in teams since last January to develop their projects from ideation through to their final pitch. The five teams presented their pitches in front of the seven Shark Tank judges, as well as about 150 family members, program mentors, school administration and staff, and guests.
The winning team members of Simplex received a $1,500 scholarship each. Runner-up team members of Ameripass each received a $500 scholarship. Also awarded was a $100 scholarship to each team member of Pet Critters, noted for being the most "socially responsible", decided on by the audience. We are so proud of these young entrepreneurs and look forward to seeing them bring their ideas to fruition!
