NFL/TechCrunch “1st & Future”

1standfuture4

On, Feb. 6, 2016, the day before Super Bowl 50, BUILD was invited to “pitch” to the owners of the NFL teams and their invited guests on Saturday as part of 1st & Future – an NFL sponsored startup competition at the intersection of sports and technology, presented by TechCrunch in collaboration with the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Our BUILDers also offered up yet another proof point for our educational model to this esteemed audience. (Watch the video here.) As they presented their businesses, they shared with the audience what BUILD has taught them in order to succeed, from learning how to push through tough moments – business or personal – to collaborating with colleagues for a better outcome.
