Stacy Flynn of Evrnu stepped up in front of a crowd of 700+ people at the Social Venture Partners’ Fast Pitch Seattle competition tonight, along with 14 other nonprofit and for-profit innovators, and blew them all away, walking home not only with a $140,000 investment (by far the biggest prize of the event), but also with the Audience Choice award of $3,500 in cash.
Fledge, the fledglings, and the mentors who have worked with Stacy for the last two months are exceedingly proud of Stacy, of her vision, and her perseverance to show the world what one person, and one small team is capable of doing.
If you’ve not followed the Evrnu story, the history is a bit complicated, but the vision rather simple. Evrnu makes cotton recyclable. Millions of tons of clothing are landfilled every year. That will soon be history.
You can watch Evrnu’s story on-stage at the Fledge Demo Day online.
And, if you’d like one of the first recycled t-shirts, you can order one today on Evrnu’s new Indigogo campaign.
