Do you believe in Karma? Pipeline’s own Paula Celestino and app co-founder Christopher Rivera certainly believe in it after winning The Miami Herald’s Business Plan Challenge. They pitched their company for Kloset Karma, an app the two entrepreneurs designed that allows users to exchange new or almost-new clothing with each other. It brings the already existing habit of swapping clothes among a group of friends to the larger community.
The annual online challenge asks readers to vote on the best business plan or idea. Earning 1,562 votes in the Florida International University Track, Kloset Karma won the “People’s Pick” for most votes.
Paula told The Miami Herald in an article recognizing the appthat she leveraged her social networks and the Pipeline Brickell community to get the word out and garner votes. Her belief in karma is solid. “You give, you receive. When I needed support, my friends were there,” she says.
Kudos to Paula and Christopher! The Pipeline Brickell family is proud of your success.
