Regarding Power Pitch:  

"After having seen  hundreds of business plan presentations over the years, these young people put the greater Chicago tech community to shame last night."

- Ron May, March 7, 2012

"I think who ever coached those kids on how to present should be doing it with adults too." 

-Nancy Munro, President, Chicago MIT Enterprise Forum
