Braxton reacted enthusiastically to winning this round of the Biz Pitch saying, “I was really excited because I've been putting so much into the business… trying to network more and get myself out there.

He works full time while also juggling the demands of his growing business. “It's really hard for right now, but I know that I have to keep grinding. Both of my parents are really big figures in my life. My father always told me, ‘if you grind hard in your prime for 10 years straight and you grind, grind, grind, on something you're truly passionate about that will be fruitful for you. And then you'll be able to live the life that you want to live.’”

Braxton says nglccNY has been instrumental in connecting him with a myriad of business opportunities. “One thing I always admire about nglccNY is that  “you're able to connect with so many people. Even if that one person can't help you, they may know someone who can help you. And I feel like that's the biggest blessing that the Chamber gives everybody… the opportunity to really push your business forward.”

His end goal for this competition “would be to win the final Biz Pitch. And not only that, but also to get closer to EY and be able to get into their other programs that I've applied for. Being seen by key people in that business, it puts me one step closer. I’m trying to get my foot in and prosper my business.”

The final round of Biz Pitch is set for Thursday, December 10th. The grand prize is a full scholarship to attend the “Building a High-Performing Business” program at Dartmouth College’s TuckSchool of Business.
