“EllisX was very useful in helping us find potential judges for the MIT $100K Competition. Not only was the process simple and effective, but it allowed us to connect with high-quality start-up founders who were a perfect fit with our entrepreneurship competition and whose feedback will surely enable the competing teams to continue growing their business ideas.”
