Three outstanding students in the undergraduate business program
at NJIT placed third overall in the 2009 DFJ East Coast Venture Challenge (ECVC)
hosted at Columbia University. 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.
