It’s that time of year. The time of year where every Dukie across the nation gets a little more bounce in their step. It’s COLLEGE BASKETBALL SEASON BABBYYYY (Dicky V Voice). In lieu of this glorious occasion we’d like to give a shout out to some of our boys back at Duke…

Last year at the Duke Start-up Challenge we decided to do something special to give back to the competition. We had already competed in the 2 minute elevator pitch competition, the executive summary competition, the business plan competition, the investor pitch competition and then the finals. This final event was a short 1 minute presentation taking place before the announcement of the 25k grand prize winners. As you probably know by now, we can talk. We can talk a lot. However,  there was no way we could say everything we wanted in 1 minute . So instead of cramming as much information into a minute as we could, we decided to do something ridiculous. We called up our boys on the Duke Basketball team Nolan Smith, Kyle Singler, Casey Peters and Seth Curry to help us out. We had no money at the time so we made some T-Shirts with spray paint and stencils for the players to throw out to the crowd.  When they came out they took everyone by surprise. It was awesome watching the auditorium go nuts and even better seeing the look on our competitors faces. Check out the pics below:

Sweet shirts huh? Also, notice the old school logo haha

Although we’ve moved out here to Colorado, we’ll always be Dukies at heart. Thanks again to Nolan, Kyle, Casey and Seth. We’ll work on converting some of these CU Buffs to Blue Devils. Good luck this season brothas!

do what you do
