At the end of the first two months of school, I have made adequate progress. However, there is still much ahead.
Up to This Point
Since September, I have started growing cultures of phytoplankton; I have aqcuired permits for horseshoe crabs and the animals themselves. I have isolated a strain of phytoplankton. I have created a plan for the future of Nannofood, and I am working on the paperwork to file an LLC in the state of Delaware.
I am in the process of redesigning my websites and building a Demo Pitch for Nannofood. In the second weekend of November, I will be at the University of Pennsylvania participating in the Ashoka Catapult Incubator, a program for high school students starting companies. I applied to this program in September and was accepted, and it will continue through March. The weekend after the Catapult Incubator I will be travelling to Las Vegas to attend the Thiel Foundation Summit, an event for entrepreneurs and changemakers under the age of 23. I am also currently working on a new nutrient formula for phytoplankton, and the horseshoe crab holding pool in the lab so that I can begin testing. It is an incredible busy but exciting future. I could not be more excited to see where the year takes me.
Motivation for the Week
From Rocky Balboa this week, I think this quote rings true for me. I have definitely encountered problems, but if I give up I will never become successful. My future holds promise, but requires the ability to persevere.
Until next week,
