Team Unicap won the final round of the Austin College Product Lab Pitch Competition during Global Entrepreneurship Week. Team members isolated a common problem for many: they don’t like tap water. So, they developed a universal filter cap that fits any beverage bottle with a standard, threaded neck—and tap water becomes filtered water without a negative impact on the environment. The team was awarded $2,000 in seed money to pursue further development of the Unicap product. Raquel Vara ’18, Deric Richardson-Riddle ’18, Rebecca Franklin ’18, and Michelle Zhou ’18 are shown, left to right, celebrating their win. Tom Buttine ’07, Austin College entrepreneur in residence, leads the Product Lab.
