Two UD student startup teams compete in College Pitch Philly
University of Delaware teams placed first and fourth in the College Pitch Philly competition at United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship’s (USASBE) annual conference.
Amira Idris, a UD graduate and founder of Vibrating Therapeutic Apparel (VTA), took first place, and Jason Bamford, Jordan Gonzalez and Keith Doggett, founders of Geoswap, placed fourth.
VTA helps people with amputated limbs better manage pain. Geoswap is a location-based file sharing and unlocking platform. The team boasts affiliation with two colleges: Bamford and Doggett are seniors in the College of Engineering, and Gonzalez is a senior in the Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics. The rules of the competition allow for only one team from each school to be awarded, so the Geoswap team waived formal placement.
