What’s in the Air?
ESU Shark Tank
This month East Stroudsburg University invited Vigon President Steve Somers to be a judge for the 2019 Innovator and Entrepreneur of the Year competition. The program allows any faculty or staff to submit an application outlining their accomplishments. Three finalists were then required to entice a collection of judges in true Shark Tank fashion. Steve took on the role of Mr. Wonderful as he was asking the most pointed questions.
In the end, the winner of the $500 grand prize was Nicole Chinnici, the Director of the Dr. Jane Huffman Wildlife Genetics Lab and the Founder/CTO of Organtick, LLC, an R&D company specializing in tick research.
