Grand Prize Winner

ImmAID

Boston Latin School
Zayna Azzouzi, Julia Epshtein, Khadija Raza

We view immigrants not as victims, but instead as a vibrant, resilient and underserved market that will drive the expansion of America’s future. This is why we created ImmAID, a first-generation woman-run business that aims to connect immigrants to services like community centers, English classes, and discussion forums. Our one-stop-shop website with premium subscription, priced at $5.99 a month, gives users access to job fairs, networking events, and private chat boxes. We are local, online, and will start in the Boston area with expansion to other cities using local stakeholders.

1st Runner-Up

Tru-Ber

St. John’s Preparatory School
Thomas Fagan, Brett Smith, Collin Taylor

Tru-Ber is a solution to the every day problem faced by those who need to move a few bulky items (couches, chairs, desks, etc.) but do not have access to a pickup truck. Using an Uber-like app, customers can request a pickup truck and a moving crew for same-day delivery without the hassle of renting a U-Haul type vehicle.

2nd Runner-Up (Tied)

Bag-Seal

St. John’s Preparatory School
Seungwon Lim, Mark Tannoury, Casey Yachnin

Bag-Seal is a "must have" waterproofing accessory for any student who must cross campus while changing classes. Bag-Seal is an easy-to-adjust cover for one's backpack, that protects books and laptops in inclement weather, while also offering additional storage space and safety features.
