UBC Technology Entrepreneurship

FlowMD was a project for a semester long Technology Entrepreneurship class at the UBC Sauder School of Business (APSC 541). I worked with Evan Trofimchuk, Manny Jagpal, Moon Zhang, Patrick Fortune, and Tobiah Newton to prototype a technology, devise a business plan based on sound market research and expected funding needs, and pitch it to actual investors. Here, we came up with FlowMD, a company offering an amusing (and urgently needed!) bit of technology to measure metabolites in urine using a device placed in one’s toilet. I co-led the technology side of our business, which involved conceiving potential microfluidic-based colorimetric reactions for metabolite quantification and prototyping/3D printing of the technology.
