Cognaisent placed second in a field of 80 startups from across the country at the Dartmouth Entrepreneurs Forum. The forum and competition were sponsored by the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship, and the forum drew a record 433 attendees to the Dartmouth campus on March 29, 2019.
Cognaisent’s team qualified for the national competition in Hanover, NH by way of the regional competition at DEN Boston where all the participating companies brought excellent pitches and solutions. Arriving in Hanover, they pitched again for a spot in the finals, then one more time in the finals to place second overall, coming away with $10k in in cash as well as AWS service and support credit.
“We’re grateful to DEN-Boston for sponsoring us and the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship for sponsoring such a great event,” said Carla Emmons, COO. “We not only benefited from the pressure of the pitch contest but the sessions we attended and the other entrepreneurs and mentors we were able to connect with during the forum.”
