For finalists, we invest what’s necessary so they can do what’s necessary.

Our first Challenge brought in 30 applications from schools all over the San Francisco Bay Area. From there we broke it down to 10 semi-finalists who we gave over 97 pages of feedback, and from there we chose our 5 finalists. These are the teams that we know we can benefit the most by helping them reaching profitable social impact.

In order to get them to that point, though, Relay provides every finalist with a specialized development plan that is made so robust because of our amazing partners and sponsors. All finalists get free classes through the SBDC, free mentoring from the same, as well as website development through Wix, and one-on-one mentoring through the Youth Entrepreneurship Program.

For the two teams that we know are capable of exceptionally deep social impact, we have provided a full-on Community Incubator complete with training, development, and startup services. Both Chompus and CLFY Sport have at least 5 mentors providing over 80 hours of hands-on development and feedback over the next three months on issues ranging from the best marketing strategy tosharpening their financial projections.
