Accion nabbed a spot at Fortune Magazine's Brainstorm Tech conference this week in Aspen, CO. Natalya pitched against 4 other startups in an attempt to convince the audience that Accion could one day be worth at least $1B, which would move the team into the realm of companies referred to as "unicorns" by the Valley. 

The judges for the contest were Brad Feld, Amy Banse, and Donald Sterling, though ultimately the audience voted for the winner. Accion won the contest and a set of Herman Miller office furniture, and Natalya got to mingle all week with inspirational folks like many Fortune 500 CEOs and the CTO of the US, Megan Smith.

The Fortune Mag coverage is here; stay tuned to the print/web edition of Fortune for a spread on Natalya and Accion.
