Bezoar Laboratories had the opportunity to take part in the Blackstone Launchpad Techstars Training Camp in New York City this past week. This was a two day training camp with several motivational speakers, dozens of mentors tailored to each team's needs, and some hands-on help from experts.
Grace and Elizabeth, and Ben Omonira, the founder of Lazarus, a projectile company specializing in neutralizing threats, had the honor of being chosen by Texas A&M's Blackstone Launchpad to represent our university.
Lindsey Pollak gives a fantastic talk on how to create a strong professional brand.

We were paired with four different mentors including a marketing guru, company executives, and many others. We learned how to track our KPIs, how to manage finances well, and got to network with several other student entrepreneurs who are working on amazing projects.

In the little down time we got, we had a great time exploring NYC!
Thanks to Techstars Blackstone Launchpad and all the amazing individuals we met there. We hope we will be chosen to participate in the final accelerator!
