Young entrepreneurs pitch projects, for money and advice

Ryan Delaney / Innovation Trail

With $120,000 on the table for aspiring entrepreneurs, college students spent Friday afternoon pitching their best start-up ideas in hopes of getting in on the winnings. The Innovation Trail's Ryan Delaney reports.

Brian Page and Benjamin Onyejuruwa stood in front of the panel of judges with their hands full of groceries in an attempt to show how much easier their invention - an electronic ID and key programmed into a bracelet - could be.

The duo are roommates and freshman at Clarkson University. They made the trip down to Syracuse University on Friday to pitch QuickWhrist for a chance to win seed money from the university's Emerging Talk program.

Even as a freshman, Onyejuruwa already holds a patent for the technology.
