Northwestern University’s Farley Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation had a strong performance at this year’s Rice Business Plan competition. Three Northwestern student groups with roots in the Ferley Center competed. Blip Energy and Hubley Surgery has reached the semi-finals of the top six teams from three different “flights”, and Blue Comet Medical Solutions has been awarded $ 25,000 in prize money.
The team received $ 25,000 from the Southwest National Pediatric Equipment Award and an additional $ 500 for the Mercury Fund Lift Pitch competition.
This was the last chapter on the road to recognition for these three groups.
Blue Comet provides an in-home diagnostic solution for stroke throat and can eventually use the same technology to inhale the breath used by drunk drivers. The one-year-old is currently working on a versatile Farley course called NUvention: Medical by Rashmi Babtiwale and Sara Jandeska. Both MBA students to graduate soon.
“Sarah is the medical director of pediatric nephrology at Rush University Children’s Hospital, so she sees children with a lot of sore throats,” said co-founder Babtiwale. “Stroke can lead to kidney disease, especially outside the United States. The prize money goes to pre-race funding to enable parents and schools to adapt our testing technology.
“The hallmark of Farley’s teachings is the opportunity to connect and learn with the real world,” said Hayes Ferguson, director of the Farley Center. It is a good idea to equip Blue Comet students with creative skills and encourage them to be creative.

Looking for “direct access to patient outcomes,” Greg established the medical equipment company from Amit Air, the MBA recipient, and at the time a resident of the Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s neurology department. As a brain surgeon, for decades, the air has been identified by a device used by doctors to drill skulls: a hand drill vibrates through the bone. Together, he and Gregory devised the first example of a modified skull.
Habi has been included in May 2019, but virtual competitions have added a new layer of accessibility to each competition. Once the team meets the $ 1 million advance, it can apply for approval from the Food and Drug Administration early next year.
According to Gurage, “Things are imaginary and we go to a lot of competitions because you can log in, jump in and out of your computer without the financial or temporary burden you have to travel.
