POINT wins top prize in Columbus pitch competition

So, for the past 14 weeks, our team at POINT has been up to something. If you don't know us, POINT is a Columbus 501(c)(3) making it just as simple to volunteer as it is to order a pizza. Our app is the easiest way to volunteer ever and is available on iOS and Android

Our team has been a part of SEA Change - a social enterprise startup accelerator. An accelerator is a program where startups are given mentorship and connections to help them reach business milestones faster. SEA Change has been a perfect fit because they focus on startups who strive to create impact in communities, not companies who only exist to make a profit.

Our SEA Change "semester" has been coming to an end, and the last assignment was to give a pitch, for cash. On Wednesday, our CEO, Madison Mikhail Bush, pitched POINT to numerous investors/do-gooders/businesspeople who care about growing Columbus social enterprises. These judges included: United Way, The Columbus Foundation, Raising Canes, Rev1, Social Ventures and Sea Change executives. 

AND POINT TOOK HOME THE TOP PRIZE!

POINT was granted $36,900 to finish our development and partial funding to hire a partnerships manager to join the POINT team. 

But we couldn't have done that without you. To our loyal readers, our dedicated app users, and social media sharers - you make POINT worth investing in. Thanks to you, WE NOW HAVE 1000 PEOPLE ON POINT. 

That's amazing. There are so many people who want to #domoregood in Columbus. Be on the lookout for big things happening, POINT is taking off! 

 

From all of us at POINT HQ, thanks for your support!
