Venture Design Challenge introduces finalists
Meet the Venture Design Challenge finalists whose projects have solved problems for everyone from music lovers to snowboarders to Pre-K teachers.
The Venture Design Challenge is a campus-wide pitch competition that provides a forum for Lake Forest College students to identify problems worth solving and mobilize the people, resources, and networks to solve them.
Congratulations to the Venture Design Challenge finalists:
AuxBattle: Alex Armas ’20 and Lucas Deely ’20 Music lovers need a unified streaming platform to wager friendly battles with friends and family because everyone has a different taste in music.
|Anti-Prick Project: Diayan Rajamohan ’21 Lake Forest College needs a safe, easily accessible way to dispose of sharps and needles.|
|Azalea’s Animals: Azalea Hallin-Graber ’23 Pre-K to second grade teachers currently lack a tool to teach social and emotional regulation via mindfulness and positive behavior strategies.|
|ReCampus: Leo Carrico ’20, Natalie Kiely ’21, Magdiel Miranda-Lopez ’20, and Pratheek Mandalapu ’22 College students need a peer-to-peer way to buy and sell goods because financial insecurity and the inability to purchase textbooks and class materials create a severe barrier to academic success.|
