UC Davis Startup Hub

I was honored to be invited to hear pitches from UC Davis students this past weekend as part of the 2017 Startup and Innovation Panel put on by the Startup Hub. UC Davis students are only two hours from San Francisco, but in many ways, in a different world. The Startup Hub aims to foster a startup culture among students on campus.

The students came from across the campus and there were some interesting ideas:

RoboNurse = in home medicine dispensary for the elderly

MarbleMosaic = a discovery app for college students to learn about student organizations and events

Culer.me = a color matching algorithm focused on apparel

VitalLinkTechnologies = a personal health alert system

Courser = a class discussion app for students and instructors

There's a lot of talent on campus and I hope to see more of Silicon Valley pay attention.
