Winning team NeuroSky 5 from Camp BizSmart Stanford was not only honored onstage by both Randy Williams, CEO and Founder of Keiretsu, and Sonja Markova, Managing Director, but they actively participated in asking questions following presentations and speaking to Keiretsu Forum members about their experience.

Keiretsu Forum is the largest global community of angel investors with over 850 members on 3 continents and 21 chapters. This was the Sixth Keiretsu Forum Angel Capital Expo, where angel investors participate and collaborate on supporting the entrepreneurial community.

Keiretsu Forum has been a special partner of Camp BizSmart and BizSmart Global since 2008. Our organizations complement one another in mission – while Keiretsu has continuously provided great learning opportunities for our students to see real entrepreneurs work hard to increase the value propositions of their companies, seasoned entrepreneurs are also inspired by the joy and passion our young students bring to solving the problems we currently face. Our students continue to demonstrate what is possible even at a young age, when teams are mentored through best practice business skills and apply innovative mindsets and determination.

Thank you Keiretsu Forum, for making this special opportunity possible, and congratulations again, Team NeuroSky 5!
