As part of the Penn Innovation Week, the Weiss Tech House brought together a student entrepreneurship panel composed of Dan Fine, Aaron Goldstein, Christopher Gray, Roopa Shankar and Alina Wong — the founders of Glass-U, Fever Smart, Scholly and NOMsense Bakery, respectively.
- Glass-U is a Dorm Room Fund-backed sunglasses company that sells foldable shades to both consumers and businesses, even partnering with FIFA during last summer’s World Cup.
- Fever Smart is a smart thermometer patch that allows you to monitor temperature continuously and remotely using your smartphone.
- Scholly is a soon-to-be seen-on-TV mobile app that helps high school students find scholarships by aggregating all available scholarships and then connecting you to them.
- NOMsense Bakery provides uniquely designed and handcrafted cookie sandwiches to the Penn community.
Here are the lessons they hoped to impart.
