Panelists

Meet our distinguished panel, featuring: Evy Chen, Founder of Evy Tea, Nate Barr, Co-Founder of Zootility Tools, Kathryn Carlson, Co-Founder of Buca Boot, and Tivan Amour, Co-Founder of Fortified Bike.


Evy Tea makes premium cold brewed tea. This is not your grandmother’s tea, they are full of "different kinds of flavors, [that] stay in your mouth, and allow you to experience the whole phenomenon.” EvyTea’s Amber Oolong won the 1st place award in the “Iced Tea – Ready to Drink Oolong” category at the North American Tea Championship in 2013.

Zootility Tools make credit card-sized multitools, so you can the right tool on you, when you need it. Nate leveraged a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund his first production run and has been flying high ever since.

Buca Boot makes a secure, flexible storage unit for the practical urban biker. Designed to adapt to your needs, The Buca Boot opens to carry big things like groceries and locks to keep your smaller stuff safe, and is weatherproof so you can use it year round.

Fortified Bike is on a quest to protect the city cyclist with anti-theft, near indestructible bike accessories for urban bikers. Tivan leads sales, and has plenty of experience: He payed his way through college selling cell phones for AT&T. In 6 months I built a network of 150 dealers who sell (and help design) Fortified gear.
