Big updates!

December 04, 2018

Hi everyone,

 

Last week, Vessel Athletics competed in San Jose State's Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge (SVIC) and won 'Best Elevator Pitch', 3rd place from 'Best Overall Innovation' and $1,000! Thank you to all the judges who provided us with great feedback and everyone who expressed interest in our startup.  Additionally, a big thanks to the Lucas College of Business, Silicon Valley Center for Entrepreneurship (SVCE), and IDEAS for providing students with opportunities like this! 

 

Lastly, as of this past week, our crowdfunding campaign has officially come to an end. We were able to raise $2,691 from the help of 36 donors. Thank you to everyone who supported our campaign by donating, sharing our page, and expressing your kind words of encouragement!  From the additional $1,000 we won from SVIC last night, we were able to exceed our goal of $3,000! 

 

Thank you for your support!

 

Best,

 

Jasmine Sanchez

CEO and Founder

Hi everyone,

 

Once again, I'd like to thank everyone who has supported our campaign by donating and sharing our page! We’re three weeks into our campaign and thanks to the support of 27 donors, we have raised $1,431! 

 

Our goal for week 3 is to get at least 15 other donors by the end of the week! Don’t forget to follow us on our social media pages for any additional updates! If you haven't done so already, I’d appreciate it if you could help support our campaign by: 

  1. Making your gift today!
  2. Forwarding the link to our page to anyone in your network who you think would be interested in supporting SJSU business students. 
  3. Sharing our social media pages which include FacebookInstagramLinkedIn and our main campaign page

I’m excited to see this all come together and will be sure to keep everyone updated. Thanks again for your generous support!

Our goal for week 2 is to raise $600 by the end of the week so we can be halfway to raising our goal! Don’t forget to follow us on our social media pages for any additional updates! If you haven't done so already, I’d appreciate it if you could help spread the word about our campaign by:
