Local entrepreneurs face off in pitch competition


Four companies squared off in a pitch competition themed off the TV show ‘Shark Tank’ at the conclusion of PS27’s fourth annual Leadership Week.

Entrepreneurs presented ideas for a vending machine full of over-the-counter medicine, homes made out of maritime shipping containers, big data software for real estate developers and a bottled water that promotes skin health. The four companies were competing for a $1,000 prize and were being judged by local entrepreneurs Quang Pham, Richard Sisisky and Tom Leonard.
