University of Arkansas at Little Rock College of Business students Abigail Resendiz, Noah Asher, Zachary Cochran and Anna Helm, along with their adviser, Business and Innovation Consultant Martial Trigeaud, have been selected to compete in the final round of E-Fest 2019 in Minnesota. Their presentation will be for Vascugenix, a patented medical device helping surgeons perform arterial catheterization with one hand and greater speed and accuracy.
The main goal of this elite entrepreneurship event, open to undergraduate students in North America and with $250,000 in cash prizes available, includes recognizing compelling student ideas for products, services, and ventures but moreso aims to encourage student learning and networking around using entrepreneurial thinking and methods to create, validate, and communicate about solutions to problems. According to the judges, E-Fest this year saw a very strong field of entries, reviewing over one hundred video pitch submissions and slide decks to determine the 25 teams to invite to the Schulze School of Entrepreneurship in Minneapolis for the April 11th-13th live competition finals and championship round of E-Fest 2019 and the Schulze Entrepreneurship Challenge.
