On The Tuesday, April 30, 2019 Edition Of Idaho Matters

  • The 2019 Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge promises $100,000 in seed money for the right pitch.
  • HGTV's Boise Boys talk about renovations, real estate and reality TV.
  • A motorcycle safety program with a goal of zero deaths.
  • Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition presents a documentary about homeless youth.

- The 2019 Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge invites teams from Idaho's colleges and universities to compete for $100,000 of seed money for a tech startup. Six of seven Boise State teams have advanced to the finals of this competition and Idaho Matters talks with Ryan Vasso, associate director of Boise State's Venture College, about the challenge as well as some student competitors.

- The Boise Boys are Clint Robertson and Luke Caldwell, masters of renovation and real estate with a program on HGTV. The two are total opposites whose traits complement each other perfectly and on Tuesday's Idaho Matters, we meet the pair now entering their second season of real estate reality TV.

- May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and we talk with Idaho STAR, a motorcycle safety training course provider.

- California's Forgotten Children is a documentary that highlights the stories of people who were trafficked and sexually exploited as children and grew up to become leaders in the fight for children's rights. The film is being presented by the Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition at The Egyptian on Wednesday, May 1 and on Tuesday's Idaho Matters, we talk with Melody Miller, the film's director and Jennifer Zielinski, executive director of the Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition about what we can learn from this film.
