Pendragon 3D Arts, LLC was the first place winner of May’s PitchPocalypse business plan contest for their 3D scanning startup.  They’ve now enrolled in our 3 month Startup Test Flight class that graduates in August after completing all the assigned projects.

The first project was to build their startup’s web presence.  Pendragon 3D Arts, LLC already had a website setup so the assignment was to build a blog and social media sites.
