Austin nonprofit wins Pitch Some Good - Austin Business Journal
Austin nonprofit wins Pitch Some Good - Austin Business Journal: Chosen from a pool 25 applications, eight social entrepreneurs, some traveling from as far away as Chicago and Pittsburgh, were chosen to give a five-minute pitch. San Antonio-based Rackspace Hosting Inc . (NYSE: RAX) provided a $1,000 grand prize for the event’s crowd-sourced winner. The honor was given to Austin-based HourSchool, a socially-driven school that gives people the opportunity to teach classes, such as sewing or motorcycle maintenance, for a fee.
