Alumni Stories



Cecilia Comia  developed the SHIFT SCHOOL ARMCHAIR made out of lightweight and durable recycled plastic that can transform and double as a makeshift bed in times of calamities. She received the Top Female Entrepreneur award and a trip to Paris from Total.



Chris started with the idea of creating a table and a chair for his daughter that would also adjust with her needs through the years. Now he has a thriving business and is still developing new products to help families bring out the best in their children.
