Simple Citizen Win

Brent recently had the opportunity to be the mentor for a BYU team in the Utah Entrepreneur Challenge competition.  This competition was being hosted by the U, with teams competing from most universities in the state.  Brent was pretty excited about his team's idea - which is a good one!  In simple terms, it sounds like Turbo Tax for Green Card applicants.  It's a simpler, online method of applying for Green Cards; which is usually a really expensive, complicated and long process.
Brent met up with his team this past weekend for the final round of the competition.  They ended up taking the Grand Prize win!  His team won $40,000 for their business.
One of his team members sent him this link to an interview they got to do with NPR.  NPR edited out Brent's name, but they did talk about their mentor.  It was really nice! Check it out.

Great business idea. Glad you were able to help them out! Look forward to seeing the launch of the website.
