We are so honored to have won Amazon's Small Business Competition, being chosen as the best business in the "30 under 30" category across the entire website.
We owe all our thanks to our fantastic customers and friends who voted for us - you made this dream come true.
The journey began when the Amazon team surprised us in person at our UCLA office to let us know we won, seen here:
This was all hush hush until the following week, Habit Nest's Mikey Ahdoot was featured on ABC's The View to announce their win:
Following The View, in February, our entire team was flown out to their headquarters, which was unbelievable to see.
We were surprised by our Chief Happiness Officer, Lindsay, at the airport! Love ya Lins <3.
We quickly rushed to our hotel after to get some sleep in preparation of our day ahead with Amazon. The next morning, we had roundtable discussions around topic Amazon's leadership principles, Alexa, and AI.
That evening we had a dinner with the Amazon team and other featured companies. They had a magician, some of the best steak we've ever had, and even gave us this shiny plaque!
The second day, we got to visit Amazon's Sphere's, which were BEAUTIFUL with over 40,000 plants, lush greens, and clean airflow.
Overall, the best part about the trip was the people. We felt like we cemented so many friendships for life with many intelligent, upbeat people. This goes from the people who worked at Amazon who went above and beyond to accommodate us to some of the other fantastic entrepreneurs we met,
We're so grateful for this amazing opportunity and wanted to share a huge thank you to everybody who made this possible.
Ari, Amir, & Mikey, Cofounders of Habit Nest
