Stephanie Bellanova and our Pro2Go marketing presentation won the ERA Shark Tank competition for the Innovation Award for Pioneering Business Concepts! We’re excited to announce that she will now move on to compete in the finals and face a panel of industry judges at the ERA International Business Convention in March 2014.
When asked about her experience in the ERA Shark Tank, Stephanie said, “I’d say that the process was great because while we all have lots of ideas on how to innovate in our own businesses, so often we don’t go through our ideas with a magnifying glass and really examine how they will affect our bottom line. Going through the shark tank competition process made me do that and I was surprised by the results.”
ERA® Franchise Systems describes the Innovation Award here: “Our affiliates contribute significantly to ERA® Real Estate’s tradition of innovation. ERA® Franchise Systems LLC honors those contributions with the Innovation Award, awarding one company who presents a well-planned innovative idea that can be measured. Finalists will be voted on by the National Advisory Council and ERA® Franchise Systems LLC. ”
Congratulations, Stephanie! We’ll be right there behind you at the 2014 ERA IBC in Los Angeles!
