Dawn Birkland recommended fernie's toolbox where Sumanth is Co-Founder

Fernando has been working with the UIC Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies on his STEMgineering Education Products startup idea for the past two years now. He has participated in the UIC Startup Challenge twice (once in 2015 and once in 2016). Over the past years, we have seen Fernando develop and grow his idea, as well as mature as an entrepreneur. As a professional, he is clearly committed to education; and personally, it is very clear that he wants to make a difference in his own community by providing educational opportunities and innovation. Fernando has taken advantage of every opportunity provided to him, both through the UIC Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies and our UIC Startup Challenge - and also through external resources in Chicago (he is doing a summer internship through the Chicago Innovation Exchange in the summer of 2016).

If chosen for the Intel Education Accelerator, I am confident that Fernando will work hard and take full advantage of this opportunity.
