On March 14 MBBP client Giant Otter Technologies was announced as a finalist in the President’s Challenge, a Harvard University competition created to foster cross-disciplinary entrepreneurial ventures that will have profound social impact. Giant Otter is one of ten early-stage, student led teams selected as finalists that will now spend six weeks on an accelerated path to building their ventures, supported by $5,000 in seed money, insight from expert mentors, and resources from the Harvard Innovation Lab will provide. A winner will be selected on May 8th after the teams participate in a “Demo Day” event, where members of the community visit an exhibition and hear the founders explain their ventures and progress.
Giant Otter Technologies creates data-driven role-playing simulations that helps with the stressors of bullying and other conflicts by helping users relate to others in their scholastic or professional settings.
Congratulations Giant Otter!
