Adelson Educational Campus “Future Business Leaders” students Harrison Kay, Lorenzo Porcelli, and Jaden Enbysk are entering Microsoft’s innovative B2B startup program which aims to connect new businesses with the resources they need to succeed. 

The AEC team is applying to the program with their “What Are Those?” (WAT) app which will allow users to employ their smartphone’s image identification capabilities to identify fashion items and access all the information they need about price, availability, and more. This will also allow advertisers to connect directly to users actively looking for their products. 

The team hopes to begin a schoolwide competition to encourage students to apply to the program. With a focus on providing start-ups with “…powerful technology including Azure and GitHub Enterprise coupled with a streamlined path to selling alongside Microsoft…,” the program is ideal for launching the ideas of young entrepreneurs who often have the creativity but not the means to start a successful venture.
