Tarini Arte and Matthew Ross have been chosen as recipients of the Andrew S. Crawford Award for Entrepreneurship Excellence. The award recognizes outstanding work in IOE 422. Both students took the class in Fall 2017.
Matt’s project for the course was called AugmentGolf. “Our product was a smartphone app paired with augmented reality, sports sunglasses that display critical information to assist a golfer during his round,” said Matt. Tarini’s project, titled Harmonix, was a wallet designed specifically for musicians. She described the product as, “a consolidated guitar tool wallet with all the essential jamming tools, including a strap-on capo and slots for 4 guitar picks, as well as compartments for money and cards.”
The Crawford Award is named for Andy Crawford, a fervent believer in entrepreneurship education who developed the IOE 422 course and taught it for nearly 15 years before he passed away in 2001.
