Droppn Picks Up the Prize
The 2017 Paul J. Holloway Prize Competition came to its conclusion on Tuesday, and the big winner was Droppn, initially called Droppit, a new social messaging platform. The Championship Round was down to a final six teams out of the 73 that entered the multi-track competition. Competing for the Paul J. Holloway Prize takes students out of the classroom and into the real world to develop products or services and present their plans to bring them to market. With the top six teams vying for approximately $100,000 in prizes to invest in the companies and products, the top prize went to the Droppn team of Max Miller '20 and Sam Warach '17, with faculty advisor Ian Grant, director of the Peter T. Paul Entrepreneurship Center. The full results of this year’s competition are available here.
