2015 Entrepreneurship Concepts Winners

Budding technological entrepreneurs make their best pitch during the PEI student Competition – Entrepreneurship Concepts

The Faculty recently hosted its eighth edition of the competition, where three successful teams shared $10,000 in cash prizes plus some useful advice.

First place and a $5,000 prize went to team Enplex. The group has developed microchip-equipped bracelets that are triggered by the motion of a handshake. The team also created a phone app which keeps a record of each meeting and sends the data to the users’ phones via Bluetooth. Team Enplex consists of Cedric Eveleigh and Francis Lefebvre.

Taking second place, and a $3,000 prize, was team eCelery. Their project was inspired by a friend with gluten sensitivity who was looking to network with others suffering from the same issues. The team is working to create a space to discuss these issues and to share and store recipes. Mathieu Jobin and Cyril Moukarzel make up the eCelery team.

Third place and $2,000 was awarded to team Insomnia Skis. This project is the vision of Adam J. Bodner, who hopes to expand his garage-based custom ski business onto the web. Fitzgerald Akhibi and Adam Badner make up the Insomnia Skis team.
