Congratulations to Ryan Herbstsomer, winner of the 2015 Carroll Biz Challenge!
Our five Carroll Biz Challenge finalists took the stage to pitch their new business ideas at the Carroll Arts Center on Thursday, November 19th. All five of our finalists did a fantastic job! However, it was Ryan Herbstsomer, Founder & CEO of Autumn Summer, who took home the prizes. Ryan won the $500 People’s Choice Award and the $5,000 grand prize for his online ecommerce site, selling handmade products for men. In addition to selling his own handmade wood products, Ryan sells a variety of carefully curated handmade products through his new online store www.handmadeformen.com.
In addition to Autumn Summer, TriSport Junction took home the $2,000 Downtown Award.
