At the ORIGIN Pitch Competition, 50 teams pitched to a panel of judges virtually over Zoom. The top three teams in each track (Full-Time Venture and Passion Project) moved onto the Final Round where judges awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places, with a prize of $1,000 donated by Chai Angels.
We are incredibly proud of all the projects created in the ORIGIN program. You can view a selection of them on our Notion.
