Accelerator Students Presented at 1MillionCups
Dylan Lam, Bradley Riches and Arshini Suresh of Lone Star High School presented to entrepreneurs at 1MillionCups regarding their experience in the Frisco ISD Business Incubator class. The students devised a startup, CHiP, during the 2019-20 school year and were winners at the Inaugural Frisco ISD Incubator Pitch night, where they received seed money for their startup from the Frisco Education Foundation.
