Purdue Student Startups Shine at Global Contest
Two Purdue University startups have received national recognition at an international competition. Aircraft galley cart developers FlykeART won $5,000 at the contest, and Global Sign was awarded $3,000 at the International Business Model Competition.
FlykeART, recognized for its work to develop lighter and smarter galley carts for airplanes, placed in the top 10 in the International Business Model Competition held at Brigham Young University.
Global Sign was selected as a semifinalist of the contest for its platform to streamline content to people who are deaf or have limited hearing.
“We are very happy to see that our company is recognized by many different participants, including the judges, and that they believe that we can be very successful,” said Yuhan Roh, one of the founders of FlykeART and a graduate assistant in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, in a news release.
