Going into the competition, I had high expectations of us. I told my partner that I would start the NeoFlow company with him if we get top 10 at ICDC. After our preliminary presentation, we felt that we did good, but also felt that we could do better. Even without hearing the direct results, we kept refining our pitch. Fortunately, we made it to the top 20 next morning. After working on our pitch even more, we gave our presentation, and felt proud of how far we got. Later that night at the awards ceremony, we were anxious, but got called up for the top 10! Later we found out that we placed 6th in the nation! I look forward to making NeoFlow a reality sometime this summer.
