Meet the SEED20 Class of 2019 Winners

The 8th Annual SEED20 was a huge success with a prize pool of $46,000.

Matt Olin once again returned as Master of Ceremony bringing his creativity to the SEED20 stage.

Our panel of judges — Glenn Burkins, Davita Galloway, and Chris Elmore offered insightful feedback on the three-minute pitches.

All ten finalists shone and told their stories of transformation, hope, and change with conviction, humor, and passion.

Wells Fargo surprised the top ten as Jay Everette announced all 10 finalists would be awarded $5000 in addition to the OnStage winning prize money!
