This year, United sponsored the award category section for product innovation with a $500 cash prize, alongside providing mentoring to the winners for the best physical product. This years product winner was student Hannah Rasmussen. The dog-lover presented her business case for the manufacture of quality pet collars and leads from waste materials to avoid the use of plastic. Her plan landed her $500 dollars and mentoring from United, as well as a $4000 website build from Firebrand. Congratulations to Hannah and all the other Audacious prizewinners.
