Students pitch their startup idea on Shark Day 2019

Shark Day 2019

Six groups of student entrepreneurs pitched their business ideas to our panel of sharks – made up of Jessica McLear P’20, a member of Launchpad Venture Group, and Christian Magel P’25, founder of the Venture Lane. While the students’ ideas were all drastically different – ranging from an app to help the visually impaired buy groceries to a device that tracks water usage – they all had one thing in common: a mission of doing social good.
