When Sam Warach '17 was a sophomore, he cofounded the UNH Entrepreneurship Club. In 2016, he was among four students to be the first to train as University Innovation Fellows. Last fall, Warach was part of a team that won a university-sponsored hackathon and went on to compete at the IBM Watson Conference in Las Vegas.
Then, earlier this month, Warach and physics major Max Miller '20 took first place in the Paul J. Holloway Prize Competition for the development of their social messaging platform, Droppit. The win came with a $10,000 cash prize.
“I've always been passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship.” Wararch says.
