Heartwork wins $4500 at #StartupConnection2017

The 2017 Startup Connection was my first time pitching to so many people in a 3 hour span. When I stepped off of the elevator to set up my table, I knew it was going to be a big night and I was right! 

There were investors, students, mentors, professionals and anyone curious to see what's going on in the St. Louis startup world. I am so honored that two businesses understood my vision, felt my passion and awarded me $4,500 cash to go out and continue to build Heartwork Videos.

I'm so grateful to BioSTL (Ben Johnson) and to Lewis & Rice (Kirk Damman & Ben Siders) for their generosity and support. St. Louis continues in their tradition of supporting entrepreneurs and I'm glad to be in this ecosystem!
