You may remember Eli Weed. Eli was a finalist in our Social Venture competition sponsored by Ernst & Young for his ground-breaking software program designed to help children with Dyslexia learn to type. We awarded him with $500 and mentorship with our friends at EY. We recently heard from Eli, and things are going well!

He’s now a finalist in a social innovation contest in Seattle, Washington. The fast pitch contest he took part in wasn’t just for teens; it was open to adults as well! Here’s a picture of the competition:


Well done, Eli! Biz Kids everywhere, take note!
