Passion and Engineering Combine for First-Time Entrepreneur
Rev Hardware Accelerator alumna, Caitlin Parrucci, won the Cornell University 2016 Student Business of the Year Award for her startup, Equine Design. Parrucci began developing her first Equine Design product at the Rev Hardware Accelerator program last summer. The product, which monitors horses’ water intake, will help horse owners, barn managers, trainers, and barn staff identify problem areas in a horse’s health. By doing so, they can take action early enough to prevent common equine health issues, some of which can be fatal. Parrucci and her team have continued building prototypes for this product, combining her passion for horses with her mechanical engineering knowledge.
