Seventeen teams of student entrepreneurs vied for $4,000 in cash awards in the Blast Furnace student idea accelerator’s Demo Day  at the William Pitt Union. The December pitch competition was the capstone event for the program’s sixth cohort of student entrepreneurs.

The $500 third prize went to Economics major Jack Glasl, and Mamadou Ndiaye of the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, for Investing Young, a personal finance education program aimed at high-schoolers.
