Elevator Pitch Win
Pavone presented the Pashion Footwear concept publicly for the first time at the Cal Poly annual Elevator Pitch Competition. She won both first and second place at the event, as judges' picked first place and the audience picked second. The two wins brought home $1,500 in equity-free initial funding for the company - just enough to create the first prototypes!
