  1. I met Kelly when I served as a judge at the Rice Business Plan competition. 12th place doesn’t really do her justice as she was much closer to winning than that would suggest. I had the opportunity to sit down with her during the semi-final round and was truly impressed with her vision and motivation. I hope that she secures the funding she needs to grow this company because I honestly believe that this is deal is a winner.

  2. Marc, Thanks for the kind words, I am honored that you would read my blog and remember me! I loved the Rice competition, wish I could return as a judge someday. We are trying to launch ASAP in time for Christmas with a variation of the business model we competed with, I will keep you in the loop!

Nancy Cadjan’s SignBabies illustrated flashcards that teach American Sign Language to babies so they can communicate at an earlier age. One woman who stopped by the kiosk yesterday told us how the flashcards helped both of her young children to be able to express themselves earlier, and how helpful that was to her family.
