Earlier this year I entered the Scion/Motivate competition, a program to help young entrepreneurs who are turning their passions into their professions. I applied on behalf of Homoground and was selected as a semi-finalist out of 1700 entries. As a semi-finalist, I was flown out Santa Monica last month where I attended 2 days of workshops on various topics of running a business. On the third day, 10 finalists were chosen and received $10,000 and a Scion car. I met some really amazing people and it was definitely an experience I won’t forget.
