After being honored as “Speaker of the Year” at SEED SPOT’s 2014 Demo Day, Blind Society’s Creative Director James Clark returned to the stage to pass the year’s torch at the highly anticipated May 2015 event.
Longtime supporters of SEED SPOT, an Arizona-based nonprofit for entrepreneurs looking to solve social problems, the entire Blind Society team was thrilled to see a jam-packed Herberger Theater. The event was overflowing with a tremendous amount of support for SEED SPOT founder, Courtney Klein, and the 15 ventures who each took the stage for three minutes to pitch their idea.
We continue to be impressed and inspired by Phoenix’s growing entrepreneurial community. Take a look at some of SEED SPOT’s successes at-a-glance.
