FEMA Employee Katrina Hoyt and Team Win Bronco Pitch Competition and Showcase
This last April, Katrina Hoyt, an employee of FEMA Corporation, and her team won the Bronco Pitch Competition and Showcase, which acts as a practice run for students who are interested in pitching their business ideas to investors. The team’s idea, Freezer Smart, is a freezer storage system that helps people maximize their freezer space without negatively impacting ventilation. Unlike similar systems, Freezer Smart is able to be adjusted both vertically and horizontally and features that make it impossible for food to fall out of the freezer. Awarded $2,000 for their win, Hoyt’s team was given valuable feedback that will help them present and pitch their idea to investors in the future.
