Congratulations to Entrepreneurial Forum winners: Orchard Systems, Inc.!

Congratulations to Ian Bateman ’18 and Thomas Cecil ’17 of Orchard Systems, Inc. for placing first in the 2017 Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Forum Competition! The DALI Lab partnered with Orchard Systems during 2016 and continues to support them through mentorship. Orchard System’s core product, Order Orchard, is a fluid online platform that connects hungry customers with restaurants for quick menu perusal and ordering. Order Orchard has enjoyed great success working with local restaurants. 

Twelve teams made up of student, faculty, and alumni competed in the semi-final round of the Entrepreneurial Forum Competition last week. On Friday, Orchard was announced the winner of the $25,000 top prize. They plan to continue expanding Order Orchard, as well as developing OrchardPOS and OrchardOS products.
