Oh what a night! My Crowning Jewel Awarded $5,000 by EforAll!
Last night was so exciting! We shared with you earlier in the summer that our Chief Queendom Member, Veronica N. Chapman, was chosen as a finalist in the Merrimack Valley Sandbox Summer Accelerator program. Last night 12 weeks of hard work culminated in an awesome and exciting awards ceremony.
There were so many great announcements last night! The first great announcement was that the Merrimack Valley Sandbox has officially changed its name to "EforAll" to further emphasize their motto and belief that entrepreneurship is for all. We couldn't agree more, and we are so looking forward to continuing our relationship with this awesome organization!
Another great announcement is that Veronica was one of the awardees last night! She won $5,000 to continue building our Queendom so stay tuned for new Jewels and new developments!
Veronica also had the opportunity to address the audience last night because she was nominated by her cohort to serve as the class speaker! Click here to read her remarks.
We are so grateful to have had this opportunity, and we are committed to making our fellow finalists; Queendom Members; and the awesome team at EforAll proud!
