A few of many stories…
In my time at Hope, the first student who entered a pitch competition was…Mr. Biggby Coffee of Holland, Mark Dykema. We like to think we gave him his sense of creativity, hard work, initiative, intelligence, persistence, sense of humor, and style!!
CFL Incubator alums Scott Brandonisio, Russell Fyfe, and Sam Tzou and the Ring Cam team moved their world headquarters from their house into the Maple Building on the corner of 13th Street and Maple Avenue, Holland. Congratulations!!
Recent CFL Incubator grad Evelyn Ritter is working with Dr. Peter Boumgarden (MGMT) and Dr. Graham Peasley (Chem) to commercialize a test for PerFlourinated Compounds (PFCs), supported by seed money from a National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (I-Corps) grant.
Here is what some of our current HEI Awardees are working on:
CFL Incubator students Matt Gira and John Boss are working with GR Current.
And Matt keeps selling JamJars by Lio.
CFL Incubator student Mark Engels is working on a diamond-related business.
CFL Incubator students Delaney Ryde and Haley Menzies are working on WOW (Wellness on Wheels), a mobile experiential learning deli they will pilot in food desserts this summer.
CFL Incubator student Ryan Johnson is working on AppleJuice, a recharging device idea.
CFL Incubator student Stu Fraser is back in town working on the visual aids for India project, now called GeKo in honor of Gene Koning, who brought us the idea; Stu is also working on a business called Stutech.
CFL Incubator student Jessica Granger and alum Macall Smith keep Tizzying!
There are still more CFL Incubator stories to share.
The best part, as with CFL Consulting, is that alums are helping current CFL students in the program. Yeah!
