Big Idea Prize Winner Plans to Build Sustainable Businesses Through Co-op Model
We wrote a story in November of last year on a Sustainable Graduate School in San Francisco offering a "free ride" scholarship for a lucky person. Well, Presidio Graduate School, has chosen the winner - Hilary Abell. Hilary's idea is to create scalable co-op business network helping the lower income working adult. Walt Pounds, angel investor and judge said: "Hilary's proposal was a clear winner for me. Although I suspect cooperatives have many challenges, it appears that [Hilary's team] are experienced and committed. Well written application and justification with personal credentials included. Glad to have this one." In our follow-up interview, listen to Hilary as she describes the idea that won her the scholarship valued at over $60,000.
