Like everyone at ComCap16, our exhibitors are exciting, handpicked, and do awesome things for their communities! We wanted to give them an opportunity to introduce themselves. Up next is Anjeanette Brown, a counselor with Girls Build which is a summer camp that teaches building and constructions skills to young girls. Girls Build was also the winner of Hatch Soup IV: The Social Pitch.
