Engineering and Nursing Graduate Students Win Entrepreneur Pitch Competition
January 22, 2016
Kathryn Christopher from the Engineering master's program and Brianna Taylor from the Nursing doctoral program won $5000 at the Entrepreneur-You Plan and Pitch competition sponsored by the Michigan Women's Foundation. Participants were required to perform a 4-minute pitch for five judges. The inter-disciplinary duo was the only team from GVSU at the competition and they won second place in the "Growth Business" category. They will receive $5000 along with in-kind services from accounting, marketing, and development firms.
The two students began working on the project "Fluition" during their undergraduate programs and have continued their collaboration through their graduate degrees.
