Dylan Renaud, an Albert Dorman Honors College senior studying applied physics and math, won $1,000 at a business plan competition hosted April 12 by the College of Business and Public Management at Kean University. Renaud’s business concept, one of 120 submitted by student entrepreneurship teams from NJIT, Kean University, Wenzhou University (China) and DECA high schools, is a novel enterprise software system and mobile app for the management and assessment of student tutoring in higher education. Renaud developed this concept in the New Ventures Management class (ENTR410) at NJIT’s Martin Tuchman School of Management

“With the assistance of both Dr. [Cesar] Bandera and our course TA, Shrutika Madda, I was able to develop my business initiative and present before a distinguished panel of judges with extensive experience in entrepreneurship and business management,” Renaud said.

Renaud has received a Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and participated in the highly selective German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) RISE internship program. Following his graduation from NJIT next month, he will pursue a Ph.D. in applied physics at Harvard University.
