Congratulations to the Winners of the eCON2016: CONRAD Case Competition! Teams were asked to find and solve a problem involving misinformation with a great startup idea. Ten excellent ideas were presented to the judges: Mark Hurwitz and David Rose from CONRAD. The following ideas were chosen as the top 3.
Tasty Truths (Tijil Dewan, Rebecca Kong, and Alexander Racher)
A biotech pen shaped device that can be pressed into a type of food to give a reading of what ingredients are in it, including dangerous allergens that restaurants may miss.
Survey Check (Stephen Chen, Viren Sud, and Manan Saksena)
A survey tool that determines if survey responses are honest based on aggregate data from their social media profile. This provides survey builders with more robust information.
- Cyber Aid (Yousuf Jinnah, Paulina Morgan, and Jian Zhou Xu)
cyber education for the growing, elderly baby boomer population. More specifically, it is a service providing courses to teach them how to be aware of and protected from various cyber threats existing today and in the future!
Winners were awarded with a cash prize and a mentorship session with CONRAD to develop their ideas.
