Dream Beyond Studios takes First Place at Inspire Hartford Shark Tank
On Thursday, May 10th, 3 teams from Pathways Academy and 1 team from New Visions competed in the Achieve Hartford! Shark Tank at the Hilton in downtown Hartford. The teams from Pathways included DeliverQuest represented by Nick Furlow; Dream Beyond Studios with Angelica Ortiz and Aracelis Figueroa; and the uHelp team with Serena Hernandez, Lauren Crispina, & Jasmin Gonzalez. Each team presented their business idea with 250 professionals in attendance from different companies and at the end of the night they voted on who they would invest in. Taking first place was Angelica Ortiz and Aracelis Figueroa with their company Dream Beyond Studios, a videography business. In 2nd place was the app uHelp, which is an app that connects students with community service locations based on their interests and tracks the volunteer hours and sends them to school directly. The first place prize was $500 and business classes to help make their business run successfully. Congratulations to all that participated.
