Phone App, Wind Technology Ventures Take Top Prizes In Notre Dame Business Plan Competition
College alumni sitting in a sports stadium or visiting a new city might wonder if any of their classmates are located nearby. If only they had a way to connect easily. How does alum find, network and connect with other alumni and lost friends in this mobile age? Now there's an app for that - or there soon will be. Huddle Up, a mobile phone application that allows alumni to locate each other within a certain geographic range, is the winner of the 11th annual McCloskey Business Plan Competition, held at the University of Notre Dame April 14 and 15. The team of Notre Dame alums Brett Hummel and Kevin McCuster, along with Coca Astey, took home the grand prize of $20,000.
