On April 17, 2018, I attended the 2nd Annual Innovation Month Riverside Pitch Competition SemiFinals at the UC Riverside ExCITE Accelerator offices in downtown Riverside. The event was led by Taj Ahmad Eldridge, Director of UC Riverside ExCITE Accelerator with assistance from Riverside I/O’s Beaux Thibodeaux and Ralph Richardson. The judges were Chad Gordon of Sierra Wasatch Ventures , Lea Deesing of the City of Riverside Innovation Office, Yuen Chau of Go Global Retail Ventures and Nolan Gouveia of California Baptist University.
