Team AxoTech, led by Lizette Velazquez and Gustavo Cruz, and Team Solubrin, led by Edward E. Timmons IV, placed first in the Product Track 1 and Product Track 2 categories at the Sunstone CSU Startup Launch Competition in May.
AxoTech is developing a Handheld Chemical Sensor that specializes in the development and deployment of advanced AI and Machine Learning technologies to address the growing concerns around hazardous substances, particularly Fentanyl.
Solubrin has partnered with Loma Linda Medical University on a new type of blood coagulation test. This test will quickly identify blood clots and improve patient outcomes.
“Congratulations to the student teams,” said Anna Long, Assistant Professor at CSUSB’s School of Entrepreneurship and the instructor for the Technology Commercialization class. “They all worked hard developing their products and companies in the past year and preparing for the competition. We are very proud of their success and look forward to great things from these entrepreneurs.”
The competition was hosted by San Jose State University. Each team received $25,000 in prize money provided by Sunstone Management.
