To win the $50,000 prize, Live Cycle Delight had to advance to the semi-finalist round in which this year’s 170 entries were narrowed to the top 10. Public voting narrowed the competition down to four finalists followed by a second round of public voting to help determine the winner. The four finalists gave their final pitch in front of a panel of judges and an audience of their peers during the Hatch Off event. Live Cycle Delight was selected based on the public vote and jury deliberations.
“Opportunity Detroit is proud to congratulate the well-deserving founders and newest Hatch Detroit Contest winner – Live Cycle Delight.
