I am happy to announce that Design by Educators, Inc. the maker of Quick Key, is a Mass Challenge 2013 Semifinalist.

Mass Challenge is one of the most high-profile start-up accelerators in New England. Thousands of companies apply to be one of 125 finalists, who are given office space, mentoring, and other assistance throughout the summer and early fall of each year.

According to Mass Challenge:

“We help early-stage entrepreneurs win.

We connect entrepreneurs with the resources they need to launch and succeed immediately.

Our primary activities include running an annual global accelerator
program and startup competition, documenting and organizing key
resources, and organizing training and networking events.”

We pitched to a panel of judges this morning at 8am. We were the first pitch of the morning. I woke up at 5am today, to finish writing my talk for the judges, and finish our Powerpoint.  Walter and I carpooled to Mass Challenge headquarters in the seaport district, Boston, where we met up with our Director of Operations, Marlon Davis.

Excitement was in the air! Bug thanks to all of the judges and facilitators of the event. We are all looking forward to Tuesday’s Meet & Greet event.

This time, I will try to remember to take pictures!!
