Briefskate / Seed Funding
It’s part skateboard, part briefcase. It’s the Briefskate: a skateboard you can open up and put your personal items inside of. We’ll introduce you to the Briefskate and its creator, USF graduate Alexei Novitzky, on University Beat on WUSF TV.
As USF officials announce plans to open a Florida Inventors Hall of Fame, they’re also offering up to 50-thousand dollars in seed funding for certain aspiring university entrepreneurs. Find out more on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
