10:30 p.m. – To prepare for the scary important idea pitches tomorrow with Tony Hsieh, we had a mock shark tank pitch with our less important scary shark tank board of our mentors with us on the trip. #We’veComeALongWay #MockSharkTank

Hopefully the sharks tomorrow are as great as they were tonight. Time to craft our pitches and get some sleep #maybe #MockSharkTank
