The undergraduates who pitched their ideas at past e-Fest competitions, and who came away with cash prizes, have continued innovating since then. During the summer of 2020 we caught up with several of these teams and their companies. We’ve learned that e-Fest gave them not only capital to nurture their businesses, but also connections, confidence and valuable experience.
In these articles they share their journeys since e-Fest, their perspectives on the challenges they’ve faced and the people who have helped them the most, and advice for students hoping to start their own ventures.
The team at LivingWaters Systems, which won the Social Impact Award at e-Fest2019, believes that clean water is a fundamental human right, but that not every corner of the world shares this right equally.
