Current students and LAUNCH.ed clients Lorenzo Conti and Alison Wood won at this year’s eClub pitching competition.
Each student entrepreneur pitched to a panel of judges and a live audience during the Start-up Festival that took place on 7th March.
Lorenzo Conti took first place in the Novel Ideas round for Crover, a moving sensor that can monitor the quality of grain stored in silos. And Alison Wood took first place in the Venture Development category for Lilypads, a social enterprise to provide girls and young women in Kenya with re-usable and affordable sanitary pads.
Raquel Wing with The Clean Hub and our own intern, Jack McMillian with Unify Messenger were runners-up in the Venture Development category.
All six winners and runners-up share £5,000 in cash prizes to support their entrepreneurial ambitions.
