Citywide Competition Held For Young Entrepreneurs

CHICAGO (CBS) — A panel of eight judges presided over the financial future of nine teams in the citywide business plan competition –where teenage entrepreneurs explain why they should win the attention and cash of venture capitalists, reports WBBM’s John Cody.

Organizer and founder the Future Founders Foundation, Scott Isson did play-by-play on the presentation by Adam Kint from Chicago’s Tech Academy.

“He has identified a problem in the market, he has developed an app that will solve that problem, figured out a way to market it and actually has the technical skills to actually build the app and develop it,” said Isson.

Kint won for the Review It mobile app which trades rewards for product reviews, Paige Robinson won in products for lightswitchskins to decorate wall light switches, and Jonathan Grayer won for the Honor rolling homework manager.
