The Wake Forest Escalator Competition was held on Sat., Feb. 12. Nine WFU students pitched their business ideas.
Afton Vechery won the Business Track with her proposal for Kera10 to manufacture and sell a keratin-based ingredient to the hair care industry. Kera10 also has applications in skin care, wound healing and scar reduction, among others.
Katarina Kesty won the Social Track for her Cataract Pack Organization, which pre-packs all the disposable supplies needed for doctors to perform cataract surgery in developing nations.
Both students will represent Wake Forest in the National Elevator Competition coming up in March. We wish them the best of luck!
The Escalator Competition is an internal Wake Forest only business plan competition with two tracks: traditional and social entrepreneurship. The winner of each track in The Escalator Competition will receive an automatic entry into The Elevator Competition AND a cash prize.
