The student team of Quaison Carter (shown at left), Louis Noto and Paulius Skema finished ahead of teams from Yale, Columbia and Johns Hopkins, among others, for their presentation of the company Fetchfire, which was founded by Carter. The ECVC business plan competition offers student entrepreneurs from top universities across the East Coast the chance to pitch their ideas to a panel of venture capital judges from DFJ and DFJ Gotham. >>
Over the weekend, a fire destroyed the apartment of three NJIT women students living off campus, including all of their belongings. They are temporarily being housed in the NJIT residence halls, but lost everything and are in desperate need of the following items: toiletries; linens (towels, twin-sized sheets, pillowcases); clothing: coats, hats, gloves, etc.; 2 size large/14, 1 size extra-large/16, including shoes and/or boots (size 8 for all three women). Gift certificates or monetary donations also will be accepted in their behalf. Beginning today, a drop-off box will be located in the Murray Center where you can deposit donations. The Murray Center is located in 261 Campus Center and is open from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. daily. >>
