Alum Wins Harvard Innovation Award
Posted 09/01/2017 10:52AM

Christopher Onesti '16 started his freshman year at Harvard with the goal of launching a startup. By the end of his freshman year, he and a classmate had won a $10,000 innovation grant from the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. 

Onesti and another freshman, Nicolas Weninger, worked together on a project for their Introduction to Computer Science class that led to a concept for Entyde, a medical device for emergency intubations.

They entered their idea in the i3 Innovation Challenge, and were one of three prize winners. Learn more
