Yesterday afternoon, I had the opportunity to join the Business Association of Stanford Entrepreneurial Students, known as BASES, as a judge for its end of the year finale in which student-run start-ups compete for $150K in prizes. This was my third year as a judge. As with prior years, I was impressed by the quality of the presentations and teams this year.
Congratulations to all of the finalists and this year’s winners:
- Calcula Technologies – an innovative treatment of kidney stones that are traditionally determined to be too small to be operable, but that are very painful for patients.
- RAVEL – a legal search platform for lawyers and law students that helps reveal the most important cases, the connections between cases, and the evolution of legal principles over time.
- Wello – an online marketplace that connects consumers with fitness professionals over live, interactive video for group and individual workout sessions.
Lightspeed has been a proud sponsor of BASES for the last few years and continues to be impressed with their impact on the start-up community at Stanford and beyond.
