A team of MSU students has been invited to participate in the final round of the Collegiate Digital Media Entrepreneurship Tournament at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Conference in March.
Students Josh Leider, Benny Ebert-Zavos, Phil Getzen and Adam Proschek developed TempoRun – an app “that will allow users to always run at a consistent and enjoyable pace, using music tempo as a guide.” The team will be invited to the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, where they will pitch their idea to a panel of successful investors and entrepreneurs on March 11. The winning team will receive top honors and valuable technology tools provided by Google Developers.
The competition began in November with a field of 64 teams, five of which were from Michigan State University. This field was narrowed to 32 semi-finalists from 18 colleges and universities in December. The eight final teams come from eight universities and seven states.
