nd Biotechnology Center, and FounderCorps made this year's competition better than ever before. For example, the partnership with FounderCorps, whose members include this region's most successful entrepreneurs, significantly elevated the intensity and value of the mentoring and coaching that each finalist received. We not only saw fantastic investor presentations, but also relationships bloom between teams and their FounderCorps mentors that will continue well beyond the competition. In addition, finalist teams and audience members alike benefited from the keen insights and advice from the panel of company founders and from keynote speaker and former competition winner  Corinna Lathan, who was named one of the most creative minds in business by Fast Company
