We have a winner.

First, I have to hand it to all who participated. All 92 startups who sent in their applications. The shortlist of 20. And then the final seven who passed through the academy, under the wing of various mentors.

They came, and they acquitted themselves well. But in the end, only one startup could claim the $20,000 prize. That startup is PrepClass. Congratulations! This is the first day of the rest of their startup odyssey.

There are many more things I would like to say, but it’s 1am, and I am about to go and hibernate for two days. But at the very least, I must acknowledge the Faculty of life. Judges of life. Sponsors of life. Partners of life. Audience of life. Awesome does not describe what you all are.

Thank you.

Pictures, video and more to come.
