Game Day at dawn. We wake up nice and early to set up for our community event! It was so nice to admire the lit-up EMC Club and Citgo sign in the early morning light.

Setting the stage. The event is off to a start with our emcee, Boston Globe’s Scott Kirsner! The cofounders of The Grommet, Jules Pieri and Joanne Domeniconi, open the event, followed by fireside chats and the eight finalists’ product pitches -- all streamed on the Fenway Park jumbotron!

Post-pitches and onto the panels. The eight finalists -- four from ready for crowdfunding and four from ready for market -- have pitched the judges. We break for lunch and sit down to panels on launching products, technology for Makers, and product design innovation. Meanwhile, the judges are deliberating...

Drumroll. The judges have cast their votes. And the winners are… O-Rings by Increment and Compost Shredder by Ecotonix! Congratulations!
