Fever Smart is a smart patch thermometer that allows you to monitor temperature continuously and remotely using your smartphone.
What’s new and exciting about your business plan?
Fever Smart’s business plan is the narrative of a business that’s been in the works for more than two years. It outlines not only our potential, but also our achieved milestones. We are excited to share our technology and innovation with the community.
How did you come up with this idea?
A few years ago, one of the co-founders underwent chemotherapy. The first sign of infection in his body was a fever, but there was no way for him to continuously monitor his temperature. Our team realized that the thermometer market hadn’t really changed in decades, so we set out to create a solution to this challenge.
What does it mean to you to be one of the eight finalists in the Wharton Business Plan Competition?
As a team of undergraduates and one 2014 alum, we are excited to represent the younger entrepreneurial community. We hope that our persistence and motivation shine through and that the Wharton Business Plan Competition Finals will be a step towards more future success.
What’s one fun fact about each member of your team?
We’re all really tall: Becca is 5’10, William is 6’2, and Aaron and Collin are both 6’6.
If you win the Perlman Grand Prize ($30,000 cash prize, $10,000 in legal services, $5,000 in accounting/strategy services, GLG Share Fellowship), what will you do with the money?
We will use part of the money to fund our next round of manufacturing and the rest will go towards R&D for development of Fever Smart Version 2.0.
