The FLoW competition was hugely important for our team, and we had a fantastic time every step of the way. I think it'd be fair to say we might not be a business without the competition and your support.

The whole FLoW experience was excellent and a lifechanging experience for our student team members. The value of FLoW came from our interactions with FLoW leadership, our mentorship from experienced entrepreneurs, working with our team to put together a great presentation and business plan, and having the opportunity to present to an engaged and critical team of judges.

- REEcycle

The FLoW competition provides the necessary business component that completes the technical breakthroughs. Without FLoW, it could not be this easy.
