11/26/2018 11:56 AM
Hi Team Urban Oasis,
Upon review of your final presentation, the Panel of Experts and Capital One have decided to award you $800 as your final Seed Grant.
We encourage you to use the funds to cover expenses related to continuing your startup idea.
While this formally concludes the program, this is not the end. There may be future opportunities for additional funding through one of our programs if you go forward with your project.
We are in the process of submitting the paperwork for the final seed grant. You can expect the check to arrive to your home within the next three weeks.
