Episode 34 (“Running With The Bulls” Winner Reveal)

And the winner is….

(Actually, it’s more like….”And the winners ARE”)

On this edition of “Your American Story”, we wrap up our coverage of the inaugural “Running With The Bulls” segment, as we talk with Colin Huwyler, CEO of Optimus Technologies, who discusses the $50,000 venture capital investment that one of our judges, Roger Byford, made into his company.  We talk with Roger, as well as the other two judges, Mel Pirchesky of Eagle Ventures and Alicia McGinnis of Audrey’s Kitchen, about what they liked, and what they didn’t like, about the entrepreneurs’ pitches, and the work they need to do to better position their companies for investment down the road.

Plus, we reveal the winner of the audience voting for our “Running With the Bulls” feature as Albert Ciuksza, CEO of PortaBeer, as Raja talks with Albert about what he plans to do with his $2,500 prize.
