THE IDEA: NERDSPORT NerdSport's mission is to encourage, support, and celebrate young people involved in non-athletic competitions and activities. This will be done through an event-based platform with complementary content online.

RISKS/CHALLENGES/FAILURES

Launching a business is not easy, but when you take it one step at a time, it becomes conquerable. My biggest challenge has been focusing on one idea and trying to start small and leave room to grow.

THE IDEA: KENNELBOTIX KennelBotix specializes in building the Kennelbot, which automates the cleaning process in humane societies and commercial kennels. It's installed into existing kennels, and at the push of a button, the Kennelbot cleans the kennel, start to finish. With the Kennelbot, more time can be directed toward the animals in shelters.
