Jaideep Seth, a student in Hoover High School’s Business Management program taught by Mike Grady, has been selected as one of twenty semifinalists in the Teen Pitch Tank business competition.
The community can do their part to help make him a finalist.
Seth's product is CrackWaxx, a resin-based substance that uses the principles of fixing a windshield crack. When it is applied to a cracked smartphone, it will rid the screen of any cracks while preventing further cracks and scratches to the screen.
The public may vote for a student’s project at TeenPitchTank.com once a day until Thursday. One of the top five winners will be determined by public voting, and the other four will be chosen by a team of independent judges. On Nov. 11, Seth and his family are invited to attend the Teen Pitch Tank Live at the Enspire2016 Conference. All 20 semifinalists will be awarded with prizes, and the top five winners will be invited to present their pitch videos.
Seth is pleased about being selected to the Teen Pitch Tank Top 20.
"While it is a big accomplishment and an honor, I am excited for the road ahead and the chance to make it into the top 5," he said in a news release.
The top five winners, which will be announced Monday, will receive a price package that includes a one-year supply of Coca Cola, $150 and a Mircrosoft Surface 3 table.
