Testimony: Giving Small Businesses The Advertising Edge
Since the beginning, Flowi was built from the ground up by high school students. Flowi always had a vision to reduce the 5.6+ million tons of paper that is lost in North American landfills annually. By creating a digital platform for local advertisers, Flowi was on the path to fixing the problem.
During the MIT Launch X program, Flowi was invited (out of hundreds of other startups) to compete at the the International Launch X pitching event at MIT. Flowi was able to secure a $5000 dollar grant to further invest in their company!
