Make48 Sneak Peak of Team Saxa Solvers

Team Saxa Solvers working with a mentor at the Make48 Competition

On August 10-12, with support from the Maker Hub and StartupHoyas, Georgetown University sent a team of four entrepreneurial innovators to the Stanley Black and Decker Innovation Lab to participate in Season 3 of Make48, a nationally aired invention competition series where students from leading universities have 48 hours to create a marketable product for a chance to develop and license their invention in hopes of getting it to market. The Make48 television documentary series is supported by innovation industry leaders like Stanley Black and Decker, Ace Hardware and QVC.

Georgetown’s team Saxa Solvers, the only all-women team at the competition, represented a diversity of majors and disciplines. Dana (C’19), majoring in Pre-Health; Melissa, (MSB’20) studying Management, Entrepreneurship, and Environmental Studies; Sarah (C’20), Studying Biology, Psychology, and Film; and Seyi who is majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies, Mathematics and Art, competed alongside teams from twelve other universities, including Michigan Technological University, Rice University, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Miami and more.

Recently, Make48 provided a first look into season 3 with this promotional video, featuring Georgetown’s own Saxa Solvers!
