Last night, while the sun set behind the mountaintops of the Ten Mile Range, light bulbs were popping inside the Breckenridge campus of Colorado Mountain College. A total of 18 innovative pitches were made to an audience of about 50, including judges, coaches, and organizers. Sticky note votes were cast, and teams formed around five finalists and their entrepreneurial exploits.

Here’s more of the scene from 9,600 feet in Breckenridge, Colorado.
