Wednesday was the culmination of Project Skyway’s 2nd class. In front of investors and many accomplished local entrepreneurs, the “skywalkers” stepped into the spotlight and made the case for further support and funding for their startups.
Thanks to three months of mentoring, hard work and a little pitch coaching from Guthrie actor Chris Carlson, the presentations were concise and compelling.
