Want another reason to regret your misspent youth?
Here are the winners of the The Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs‘ annual professional business-pitch competition among teams of high school students. Three teams came out on top, winning cash prizes to continue their innovative ventures.
First Place – Pathfinder, an app similar to Waze but specific to colleges and universities, allows users to request companions, quickly call for help, and report happenings across campus.
Second Place – Personalized Responsive Emergency Safety System (PRESS), a customizable bracelet design that is tailored to children with allergies, enabling them to contact family members and emergency services quickly, with the press of a button, in the event of an emergency or allergic reaction.
Third Place – Zense, an alarm clock that wakes users up slowly, eliminating harsh alarm sounds and replacing them with aromatherapy and noises that steadily increase in volume.
