Junior Jehaan Dalal talks about his recent product pitch for Incubator.
Q: What made you join Incubator?
A: The fact that we could create businesses in high school and really get exposed to the business world before college.
Q: What was the process of developing your idea like?
A: We had one day where we wrote down a bunch of problems that we wanted to be solved. We had a group of four people, and we picked our favorite one.
Q: What do you like most about your group?
A: Our teamwork. It’s very solid. We’re all friends, and we’re all passionate about the idea and want to move forward.
Q: What project are you working on?

Q: How did you feel going into your pitch?
A: I felt good, confident. It went well. We’ve been preparing slides the whole year, and we were ready. The judges said they really liked our idea.
Q: What are you looking forward to about Accelerator next year?
A: I’m looking forward to making our product into a real idea and actually developing the app.
