Our project aims to elevate owners' experiences with their pets through an innovative goggle. These goggles will be secured to your dog's head with plenty of soft paddings. In addition, our goggles come with a video camera that allows the users to record their favorite outdoor activities through their dogs' perspectives. These will also be fashionable as we hope to develop interchangeable pieces of accessories that could be swapped easily. We also hope to develop a smartphone app that would retrieve the videos from the goggles instantly.

SauceBox is a convenient and personalized service connecting hot sauce lovers with high quality samples. Vision: Yes, there is a burgeoning craft hot sauce scene in the United States, but it is expensive and time-consuming for spice lovers to discover their favorite hot sauces from the crowd. So we want to make this process easier and cheaper for consumers. Mission: Your next favorite hot sauce is just waiting to be discovered. Hot sauce as an industry is mimicking the developments in the beer industry in recent years. Small hot sauce companies making craft products from high quality ingredients are becoming more and more successful, and more and more prevalent. Hot sauce has an even lower barrier to entry than brewing beer, which means that consumers have to sort through a lot of low-quality products to find the gems. With SauceBox, we hope to improve that process by making samples of craft hot sauces widely available for a cheap price. SauceBox will offer a subscription box full of samples that are personalized to each user’s tastes. It is a Birchbox for hot sauce. Current offerings are “hot sauce of the month” clubs, and do not take individual users tastes into account. Additionally, they send full-sized bottles which may or may not end up being used. By sending targeted samples, SauceBox can be cheaper, still achieve the same effect for manufacturers (consumers have sampled, and will now buy more of my product), and create an engaging tasting experience for customers.
Hi I'm Albert, graduate student by day, aspiring biomedical entrepreneur by night. Throughout my studies in the Applied Bioengineering program at UW, I have developed strong skills in project management, business, and mentorship as well as a captivation towards entrepreneurship. In this program I joined a team a students in designing clinical solutions in the biomedical sphere and even entered UW's Health Innovation Challenge with them. Analyzing consumer needs and making professional connections are among my greatest passions and I am excited to perform these tasks in the workplace.
I am an MBA student at Foster School of Business UW Seattle that has an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering also from UW Seattle. For the last couple of years, I have worked in business development and business strategy roles for a cannabis marketing agency and now with a pharmaceutical start-up company. My strengths are taking cool ideas and finding ways to commercialize them with sustainable business model that looks at the industry's economics (demand vs. supply), market and consumer purchasing trends, segmentation, computing total addressable market, building a go-to-market plan, writing business plans, presenting business cases for making decisions, and much more. Prior to entering the MBA program, I designed and managed airplane interior development projects, specifically with airplane galleys and bars. These customer touch points led me to conducting market research to understand passenger and flight attendant user experiences on-board an airplane. Through this, I discovered that understanding the demand-side for a product and/or service can help increase consumers' willingness to pay, increasing the overall value of a product/service and the company's brand. Sorry for the long description, but please reach out to me for a phone call, coffee talk, etc. I'm a laid back person, that really wants to help the STEM community grow their ideas into a reality. --Sincerely, Kenneth

A carpooling app that uses location tracking and Facebook to pair people that share similar commutes. The app offers solutions to the three main reasons people don't currently carpool. First, it uses location tracking to record your schedule for you and then match you with other's sharing your commute. That way you don't have to spend countless hours trying to explain and match up your schedule with different people. Second, the app uses Facebook to pair you with only your friends. That way you don't have to deal with the "awkward silence" in the car, and your safe! And third, there's a backup On-Demand ride feature to ensure you aren't stranded if your carpool leaves without you. All these features are put in place to make sure there is no excuse for people to not carpool. Also, think of it as socially saving the environment!

Hi there! I’m a PhD student in marketing at UW Foster School of Business and I have a world-changing business idea. We are developing a revolutionary brand of soap that will help people determine when their hands are *actually* clean. Most people don't wash their hands long enough (15-20 seconds as suggested by the NIH and the Mayo Clinic) and improperly washed hands are a NUMBER ONE reason of infections in hospitals and spread of disease. People die from germs on their hands! This soap would help them not to ;) and would help the rest of us stay healthy. Being a marketer by trade, I already have a wealth of research supporting just how awesome (read - "profit potential") this idea really is. If you join my team, you will be a part of this product from the start - from creating an exciting brand (including choosing a new name!) to being a part in the research and development process, creating a successful pitch, and presenting it to potential investors. I will share more info with potential teammates, including how this soap works, but let me know if you have any questions in the meantime!

Lonely Produce www.lonelyproduce.com We are currently a team of two. An MS in Entrepreneurship student and a fourth generation farmer working together to reduce food waste. Lonely Produce provides a marketplace for excess goods from local farmers markets. Currently 20-30% of all market goods go to waste after each market day. Farmers harvest what they think they can sell and often bring more than they need to make sure they don't run out. At the end of the day they either throw out the goods or try to sell it to local restaurants. We are creating an online marketplace that pairs up buyers with sellers in real time and facilitates the delivery of the left over goods after the market. We are currently looking for UX designers, Full Stack Developers and Finance guru's. But if you have a drive to get things done we could use your help in both the environmental innovation challenge and the BPC!

My name's Carl, and I'm a 2nd year Evening MBA student at Foster with a passion for sustainability, environmental stewardship, and clean energy. During the day, I work at a nonprofit that invests in entrepreneurs that can't get bank financing. And here at Foster, I'm interested in general management, marketing, entrepreneurship, and finance. Craft3 (www.craft3.org) is a nonprofit loan fund with about $200 million under management in Oregon and Washington. We make business loans from $50,000 to $10 million, generally to businesses or projects that aren't bankable today, but will be in 3 to 5 years. Because we're unregulated (unlike a bank), we have a greater deal of lending flexibility and can finance emerging industries (including clean energy), startups, and in situations where there is limited/no collateral, storied credit, or external factors that have negatively impacted the business. For Craft3, I handle external/government affairs, media relations, communications, and marketing. Because we're a mission-aligned nonprofit, we focus our investments on businesses and projects that make the greatest impacts in the community we serve. Prior to Craft3, I worked for seven years for U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell in Washington, DC managing small business, transportation, and federal appropriations policy.
