Congratulations are in order! This spring, HeadRoom’s managing partner John Tooher mentored Temple University student Anmol Gupta in preparation for the Be Your Own Boss Bowl hosted by the Temple Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute. At this annual live pitch competition, Temple University students, faculty, staff and alumni pitch their companies to a panel of industry experts. The judges awarded First Place in the Social Impact Track to Anmol for his company Reels on Wheels!
Anmol’s innovative idea will use the power of film to help the government and private business reach extremely rural communities in India. Many of these communities do not have access to modern amenities like movie theaters. With Reels on Wheels, citizens will have the chance to view films – at the same time, government and aid organizations will also be able to provide things like life-saving health information that otherwise may not reach these communities.
Our own John Tooher helped Anmol refine and practice his pitch presentation so that he was ready to go before the judges. Anmol is looking forward to bringing his idea to life with the help of the $20,000 prize. Congratulations!
