Joe Beck and Nigel Haley Electrical engineering students, Joe Beck and Nigel Haley, won First Place in the York College Entrepreneurship Elevator Pitch Contest for 2014!

Joe and Nigel won the Elevator Pitch Contest with their uniquely designed alarm clock pillow that wakes you up without disturbing your neighbors. The pillow encapsulates speakers, a vibration motor, and lights to be used as an alarm clock and for audio streaming. Joe and Nigel won $1000 to kick start their pillow. "We are currently using the winnings to pull together a prototype that will easily be mass produced" Joe said.
