Castle Placement and the University of Michigan
The grand finale of CPGO Competition IV, a capital raising bracket tournament sponsored by Castle Placement and the University of Michigan, took place on November 26, 2019.
Throughout the tournament some of UMICH’s best students pitched their businesses on Castle Placement’s website, as if they were presenting to investors to raise capital. The contestants were all great companies poised for growth. Thousands of voters narrowed the field in on-line voting to four finalists who pitched at the grand finale.
Each finalist presented their company, opportunity, and strategy to a panel of judges. In the end, the judges selected Yellow Jacket, a growing company that helps e-cigarette users quit smoking.
