After hours of hard work, the students who participated in the JagStart competition finally came together and pitched their ideas to a panel of judges.
JagStart is an annual workshop series and pitch competition that helps IUPUI students bring their innovations to life, according to Chris Rogers, a faculty fellow in the Institute for Engaged Learning, and Barb Cutillo, co-director of JagStart.
“Undergraduate and graduate students will generate an initial idea, identify a target market, develop a business model, and prepare a pitch to communicate that idea to potential investors or other interested groups,” Rogers and Cutillo said in a statement.
One of the students who participated this year was Anna Dorris, a finance major, who won the grand prize for Everewear. According to Dorris, Everewear brings a curated shopping experience to the secondhand clothing marketplace.
