Florence, Alabama- TASUS Employee Nick Willis and his team won 1st place in the collegiate category for The Big Idea competition. The goal of the competition is to encourage the development of entrepreneurs and to create excitement in the community while bettering the Shoals region. The Big Idea Competition ideas are focused on Digital Technology.
In the past, competitors have developed ideas such as an app that connected local farmers with customers, a smart parking app, and solar powered charging stations for cellphones. Nick’s team’s idea was for ‘smart’ prescription bottles with sensors on them. These bottles would deliver notifications about when to take the prescription, as well as whether the medication has expired or been tampered with.
We are extremely proud of Nick and his team! Congratulations on your success, and keep up the good work!
