The grand finale of CPGO Competition VII, a capital raising bracket tournament sponsored by Castle Placement and the University of Michigan, took place online on May 12, 2020.
Throughout the tournament some of the best students in the world 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 from prestigious institutional investment platforms including: Castle Placement, CitiGroup, Veritas, Spectrum Group Management, and Monroe Capital. In the end, the judges selected Locus, a growing company that provides a unique method of sharing information and connecting with others both virtually and physically.
