|The winning design in BW Blackstone Launchpad's |
Fall 2014 "Start Something" Design Contest
Shackelford, an exercise science major with a nutrition minor, says he has enjoyed learning about entrepreneurship through Blackstone LaunchPad's workshops and thought this contest would be a good opportunity to get more involved with the program.
When he saw the fliers for the contest Shackelford says he knew that with his knack for problem solving and his sister's artistic talents, he could come up with and execute a winning design. Shackelford credits his sister with bringing his idea to life, saying "without her artistic ability, my idea wouldn't have been worth much at all."
