Kennan-Flaggler Business School Entrepreneurship Center Blue G.O.A.T. Award
The Kennan-Flaggler Business School Entrepreneurship Center Blue G.O.A.T. Award was awarded to me on April 12, 2019. My team and I participated and won first place in the Entrepreneurship Center’s BlueTank competition. Our goal was to identify a need on UNC-CH’s campus or in Chapel Hill and design a product to fill that need. My team and I developed “OneTag,” a multipurpose NFC enabled app that was designed to be an electronic version of student’s OneCards.
