BomBoard Kick-Ass WaterKart wins 2nd place in the MIT Enterprise Forum whiteboard competition
The Whiteboard Challenge gives entrepreneurs 5 minutes to describe a business idea using only a marker and a whiteboard. 80 applications were narrowed down to 10 finalists from a wide variety of industries.
Anders Stubkjaer, the COO / CFO of BomBoard LCC, presented the BomBoard Kick-Ass WaterKart idea in front of a panel of judges and a packed auditorium. “We are extremely pleased with our 2nd place finish” said Anders. He went on to say: “This competition was more challenging because we were not able to show the videos of our prototype in action.” Still well over half the audience raised their hands when Anders asked if they would like to ride the BomBoard.
John Jonelis, the editor of Chicago Venture Magazine said: “Bomboard is the most significant recreational breakthrough in a decade because it represents the merger of Thrill and Athleticism with Portability and Affordability. I want one and so do most people who find out about this superb craft”
