    Smaller than usual and I'm not 100% sure about the Business Model format, but it was very interesting and great to see people!

    I was hoping the business plans had been more well defined. As an entrepreneur coming from a technical background, I was hoping see more personal investments in their ideas for their businesses.

    Although the "pivot" concept was an interesting focus, I think its value is primarily when there's a reality check to that personal stake in your business idea or model, forcing you to challenge your desires. Without that personal stake, pivots seemed to be mostly academic exercises for the competition.

    I'm glad to see Yo Mama Packed It took first. They definitely believed in their business case and brought enthusiasm and commitment.
