Tell us about yourself

I am Michael Vigil, VP of Finance for Xi Acai. Honorable mention to Hack_Cancer for putting on events like this one in efforts to raise money for worthy causes like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and local charities like Family House.

Why are you participating in this competition?

The premise of our company is to create products for health conscious and sophisticated individuals. Xi Acai is packed with omegas and high in antioxidants from the super-berries, which help ward off oxidation of cells that cause cancer! Not only that but cancer hits very close to home for us, one of my business partner’s mother and aunt have cancer and non-hogkins lymphoma and one has won the battle and the other is in remission thanks to research and money raised from causes like Hack_Cancer.
