On October 10th, OX SOX won the UGA idea accelerator. Competing against 6-total teams, OX SOX took home the grand prize. The competition consisted of pitches from every team, followed by a Q&A session with the 4-judges. Founder of OX SOX, Matthew Tesvich, blew the judges away with his pitch to eliminate stinky feet affecting almost 1 in 5 people. Judge Rob Shier commented, “This is a polished presentation, we understood the product easily, and you gave us a good financial analysis – even at a high level.”
The UGA Idea Accelerator is an intense 4-week program hosted through the University of Georgia’s Entrepreneurship program. Teams test their ideas each week to prove their concept, and increase their reach. At the end of the 4-weeks, every team left will compete in a pitch competition against each other. A combination of the best pitch, product, presentation, and Q&A session will win the top prize!
Slip into OX SOX, and together, let’s CONQUER odor!
