Generations | 2018
awarded: $19,000 cash
Generations, a web-based platform created by current Master of Science in Global Leadership (MSGL) students Janaira Quigley and Anna Kenneally, allows stay-at-home parents to build a business and to gain an income by providing caretaking and companionship services to home-bound seniors. This idea received $19,000, the largest share of V2’s $30,000 seed prize money purse for USD teams.
“I’m in shock, but people really like our idea, it’s not just a pipe dream and we’ve put in the work to prove it. The idea for this started years ago, but building out the business model and doing the tangible things happened about a year ago,” said Quigley, who gave the live pitch. “This last year it’s been more than a full-time job with school and being a mother of two.”
She said the total amount will cover what’s needed to launch Generations.
“The $19,000 will build out our website and our platform and it will enable us to launch. This is what we needed for it to go.”
