Congratulations to The Common Pheasants, winners of the November 16, 2017 Pitch of the Week (POW!) Preliminary Challenge. Team members include Hailey Phillips, a freshman Biology major who minors in Biochemistry, Mehul Jain, a junior Computer Science major who minors in Mathematics, Sameer Ingavale, a senior Business Management major who minors in Entrepreneurship, and Rahul Dwivedi, a sophomore Mathematics major who minors in Business. This week’s randomly drawn prompt was comprised of child care, scanner and bricks.

The Common Pheasants will advance to the final round of POW! to be held on Thursday, November 30 from noon-1:00 in the UTA FabLab. Each member of the winning team at the final round will receive $50 gift cards.
