Velocity Fund Finals Recap!

Picture
 
A pretty surreal moment with my grandparents!
 
On March 30th Marlena Books pitched in the Velocity Fund 25k Finals at the University of Waterloo! We were blown away by the quality of the pitches the other finalists presented and had a wonderful time getting to know the other teams throughout the process. We are so honoured and humbled to be one of the four 25k winners along with the teams from Emagin, Gamelynx, and Serenity Bioworks. Thank you to everyone who supported us leading up to the event, and took the time to come and watch us in-person or online. Special thanks to our supporters from The Centre for Peace Advancement, St. Paul's Greenhouse, and the Velocity Garage, your mentorship prepared us to deliver a winning pitch! If you did not get a chance to watch us on Thursday you can rewatch the pitch! 

Thanks again for the support, we are excited to further our work and to see what the future has in store for us!
