Case Study

Arizona State University

“The StartupTree Platform has been a vital asset to not only growing our program, but enhancing the resources and accessibility of support to our ventures, mentors, staff and prospective founders. When we had to make a quick pivot to an all-virtual environment due to the pandemic, the competition feature made it easy for our ventures, but more importantly, the Judges assigned to evaluate submission materials. Their experience was described as smooth, straightforward, and easy to navigate.”
