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.
