With the ongoing pandemic, Schulich Startup Night (SSN) took place virtually in November 2020, with a pitch competition and fireside chat. This bi-annual event gives students and alumni an opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a panel of top industry professionals for a chance to win a $5000 cash prize.
In this edition, BEST Lab announced two winners for the Most Impactful Technology Application Award; DrCar and Engamio.
Engamio is developing a platform to help event professionals to boost audience engagement at virtual and hybrid events through gamification. “We believe that modern day events should not only be impactful and make this world a better place but also be creative, engaging, and fun!” says Dimash Kunayev, the Founder of Engamio.
DrCar is an online marketplace of local Car Auto Shops. To be released for closed BETA launch at the end of this month, DrCar helps you find and book a mechanic at a local Auto Shop for the unique car problem you are facing. Once the repair is done, the platform keeps a track of your repairs and predicts your future car repairs using AI technology. A one in all solution for car repair, DrCar is rewriting the future of how we take care of cars. Utkarsh Pandy and Abhinav Singhavi first met at the Dream Team, an event jointly run by Lassonde School of Engineering and Schulich School of Business.
