Master of Technology Entrepreneurship and Innovation (MTEI) program teams.

Inspiring Competition

By Suzanne Robicheau | fall 2016

Thanks to the generosity of Saint Mary’s alumni Mike and Catherine Durland, three teams from our Master of Technology Entrepreneurship and Innovation (MTEI) program each received a prize of $20,000 in the 2nd annual Durland Innovation Fund Competition. The winning projects were ProTell, a wearable technology designed to help those who suffer from sickle cell anemia; SWAP, a security technology that thwarts hackers and thieves by using fingerprints to validate credit cards; and SeeMePly, a technology to help African students apply for post-secondary education. In related news, ProTell and SeeMePly went on to place in the top 20 out of 5000+ teams from around the world at the 4th Annual International Business Model Competition (IBMC) at Microsoft’s corporate headquarters in Redmond, Washington.
