By all measures, it was a very successful Expo; for three investors, it was an exceptional Expo. To encourage constructive feedback to presenting companies, investors who submit their 'gold sheet' feedback forms for all three sessions were eligible to win a $25,000 investment in the Most Valued Company Special Purpose Vehicle. The winners were drawn at random and are:

An investment of $25,000 has been placed in the name of each drawing winner and each of these companies will receive a $25,000 investment to kick-off their respective fundraising.
