Congratulations to the winners of the first ever C/I Student Incubator! The team of Detzani Campos, Sidi Fall, Oumar Koulibaly, Olenny Polanco, Ana Reyes and Moubarak Teouri competed at C/I's Microsoft-hosted Hackathon in January and took home the prize for "Best Design." This allowed them to participate in a Student Incubator in which they had the opportunity to develop their app and pitch it for a competition to take part in the 2015 Social Media Week in Manhattan!
The team's app: Know Your Neighbor or #KYN won first place and not only got to present their app to an audience at Social Media Week, but also got to meet Civil Rights Activist and Leader Reverend Jesse Jackson! During their presentation the hashtag #SMWDiversity was trending throughout the nation.
