StartUp StorySlam had a first! Our Contagious Story Slam ended in a tie! Vanessa Chan and Parchelle Hotten both delivered first-rate stories on the theme and both ended up winning first prize, one free month of Mobile Pro Membership at Benjamin's Desk. Vanessa talked about he invention of tangle-free earbuds that to the eye look like jewelry and how she has been working to make the product "contagious!" Parchelle told the touching story of being hired to shoot an elaborate marriage proposal.

Thanks to everyone who came out and told their story, those who came out to cheer them on, and our judges. We had a fun night of stories, pizza, beer, and networking - and we're going to do it again on Wednesday, March 2. Join us again at Benjamin's Desk for our "Leap of Faith" Story Slam.
