Athgothon Highlights

A variety of speakers – from Ms. Kathy Calvin, the CEO of the UN Foundation to a Hall of Fame, NBA legend Mr. Dikembe Mutombo, and others from the Silicon Valley – bestowed their knowledge and wisdom upon participants about innovating intelligent businesses, securing funding, building lasting teams, reaching sustainability and more.

Young participants formed new startup teams to create constructive businesses. Thorough discussions, riddling questions and deep contemplation arose out of teams while they toiled towards fine-tuning their pitches in hopes of securing grants as well as potential partnering with forum’s high-profile observers and investors.
