Kirtland, a senior business administration-entrepreneurship major, is founder of OneMessageID, a plan to connect neighbors through an online network.

Second place finisher was Arrow Cone presented by Phillipe Rodriguez, a senior physics major with a business emphasis, followed in third by Exo Assistive Technologies, headed by mechanical engineering major Trevor McLeran and business administration majors Dan Nannery, Jessica Bonilla and Nick Sieverson.

More than 100 individuals, including a group of Anaheim middle school students who are part of a STEM Mini-Business Incubator program, attended the annual competition, which was established to identify and reward the best entrepreneurial concepts developed by Cal State Fullerton students.

In addition to the competition, visitors were able to attend an Innovation Exhibition that showcased products and projects created by students, alumni and community members. Read more about the contest and exhibition.
