Congratulations to Dee Frazier, the winner of our first ever Startup StorySlam in New Jersey! Her story, which she entitled, “Why? Why Not?” was an amazing tale of a social entrepreneur taking her poor and hungry upbringing with a drug addicted mother and turning that into motivation to provide scientific calculators, protractors and compass to 8,000 school children in poor and disadvantaged areas.
Thanks to everyone who threw their name in the hat. We hope you check back because we will have videos of the stories posted on the StartUp StorySlam YouTube channel sometime in the next week. Big thanks to the Burlington County Library for hosting the first New Jersey StartUp StorySlam.
Do you have a StartUp Story? Our next StartUp StorySlam will be held on Thursday, February 4th at Benjamin’s Desk in Philadelphia, PA. Doors open at 6:30 and we start hearing stories around 7pm. Come out and join us, see what StartUp StorySlam is all about! Reserve your tickets by clicking HERE.
