CBIC Finale Results
Thursday, April 30th
The results are in! On Thursday, April 30th, the Alex. Brown Center hosted the CBIC Finale at Betamore. After an evening of heavy hors d'oeuvre, and six competitive pitches, the panel of judges took on the difficult task of ranking each pitch from first to third place in our Technology & Innovation and Social Impact tracks. First place received $3,000, Second place received $2,000, and Third place received $1,000 to put towards their ideas. Each team is eligible to apply for an additional $2,000 in six months if they are still pursuing their idea. Now, for what you’ve been waiting for- the results!
Technology & Innovation Track:
First Place- Haven Cloud, Faheel Kamran & Mahmoud Shalby
Second Place- Crypto Briefcase, Noah Masri & Talon Schroeder
Third Place- Xeddy, Basil Udo
