Since even before her acceptance into the 8-week intensive summer accelerator, the Breakthrough Lab (B-Lab), Rosie has been working diligently on her startup, ReliaBra. She and her team conceived of the idea in ENGN 1010: The Entrepreneurial Process. ReliaBra is creating sticky bras that offer removable and replaceable adhesives. ReliaBra provides women the confidence to wear what they want, without worrying about their bra losing its stick. Now Rosie will be pitching at the “Get Started RI” Pitch competition sponsored by CoxBusiness. She was one of 75 applicants and chosen as a semi-finalist among 12 other startups.Other semi-finalists are current Brown students, Jack Roswell ‘20, Julian Vallyeason ‘20 and Oleksiy Zhuk ‘20 of Cloud Agronomics, and Michelle Petersen ’18 of TextUp. You can watch all the semi-finalists pitch their business idea to a distinguished panel of experts for a chance to win $50,000 in prizes. #GetStartedRI Location: WaterFire Arts Center, October 4, 5:30 – 8:30 PM.
