The Judges

Because of the diversity we expect from an idea competition, we’ve assembled a diverse lineup of judges. From the largest startup editorial in the south east to founders of the America’s first 3D printed home, our judges for the first Startup Idea Competition are as unique as the ideas we hope to see.
