MINNEAPOLIS -- Meghan Sharkus may only be 18 years old, but she has already founded ExpressionMed, a company that aims to help children with diabetes have a more positive experience in dealing with the disease. The startup allows children to express themselves through their medical devices.
Recently, the Wisconsin native entered her company in a contest called The Bizzy Project - nationwide search for big ideas on businesses with a conscience. The Bizzy Project contest is by coffee startup Bizzy Coffee - a Minneapolis-based coffee company, which offer a $5000 grant and mentorship to the winning team.
The contest attracted entries from around the country, which were then narrowed down to 4 semifinalists. Aside from ExpressionMed, the 3 other equally impressive semifinalists were:
Launched in April, the contest ended last July 5 with ExpressionMed by Meghan Sharkus emerging as the winner, as decided from thousands of voters from all over the country.
According to Bizzy Coffee co-founders Alex French and Andrew Healy, The Bizzy Project is their way of giving back while championing causes that have a big impact to society.
