  • First Place: The grand prize is $2,000 plus an opportunity to pitch investors and gain access into the Startup Kai training program (estimated value ~$100).
  • Second Place: The next team will receive $1,500 in prize money and a scholarship into the Startup Kai training program (estimated value ~$100)
