Create Fest combines engineering minds, business savvy to develop marketable inventions

Developing successful business models for engineering inventions takes partnership and collaboration, which is what this week’s Create Fest at Liberty University is all about.


On Thursday, student teams from adjunct professor Marc Jantomaso’s Introduction to Engineering (ENGR 102) class showcased posters of their innovative project ideas in the School of Business atrium. Fellow students and faculty members will vote on the top 10 ideas, and the winners will advance to a “Shark Tank”style pitch competition on Friday night. Judges include Dr. Jeff Cohu, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., as well as the founders of two local businesses, Rookie’s and Bacon Street Bagels, Liberty alumni Jordan and Holly Nickerson.
