On the evening of May 15, the Innovation Hub held its inaugural Student Idea Accelerator DEMO DAY competition. This is the sister program to Startup NOW, and it is open to degree seeking students at Broward College. After 9 weeks of self-discovery, customer discovery and prototyping, eight finalists made it to the final round and competed for the first prize ever awarded from the J. David Armstrong Student Venture Fund. The winners will continue the development of their concepts under the tutelage of mentors from the Innovation Hub. Congratulations to Tangy Frederick, Federico Fermin and Heather Rothman on their achievement!
