First Access wins first place in the William James Foundation Sustainable Business Plan Competition, with the highest score in its category and across all categories!

We would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to the William James Foundation, and in particular to Charles Dell (above, front), Ian Fisk (above, right), Stefan Friedman (above, left), and to Kerri Murphy, Anu Keshavan, all the awesome volunteers, and our final judges, Wayne Curtis, Alison Shapira and Dawn Edwards. We’re thrilled with our prizes, including services from FILMMASON, Grasshopper, HIP Investor (Human Impact + Profit), CSRWire, EcoPrint, not to mention cash, which will support the travel of FILMMASON’s founder, Brandon Bloch, to Tanzania in November to capture our story on the ground.
