Well, it would be fair to say that his expectations have been exceeded. After competing at Inventures, Rosentreter was awarded a $12,000 US scholarship by Tim Draper and Asra Nadeem to attend California’s Draper University of Heroes for a five-week entrepreneurship boot camp in Silicon Valley.
Tim Draper is regarded as one of the most successful venture capitalists in the world, and his investments include Baidu, Hotmail, Skype, Tesla, and SpaceX, among others. He is also the founder of Draper University. Nadeem, too, is a respected angel investor and thought leader who works on a truly global scale and helps to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs through her position as Vice President at DraperU.
To be noticed by these giants is a win in itself, but Rosentreter has taken it one step further. At the end of his five weeks at DraperU, he pitched to 200-plus angels and venture capitalists and was chosen as the most investable startup of all 80 pitches. He was also recently selected to participate in CDL-Rockies, the Creative Destruction Lab housed at the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary.
Here’s wishing Rosentreter even greater success as he continues his journey! We’re proud to have had him on our roster at Inventures 2019 and can’t wait to see where he lands.
