Stillman School Senior One of “Entrepreneurial Eight”
Seton Hall > News & Events 

Notefu.lyStillman School senior Taseen Peterson is one of “entrepreneurial eight” to compete in Student Startup Madness, a national collegiate tournament focused on helping young student entrepreneurs succeed.

An economics major, Peterson initially competed against 64 teams that were narrowed down to 32 and now to the final eight.

His venture is Notefuly, an app for computers and mobile devices that bridges the gap between a sticky note and the digital world. With the use of cloud technology, Notefuly keeps lists, notes and reminders securely updated across all devices automatically, and in a visually appealing format. The app also allows for seamless collaboration with others.

In early March, Peterson will compete against students from universities including Carnegie Mellon, University of Southern California, Michigan State and the University of Illinois. Representing the Mid-Atlantic region, he will pitch his venture at South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, to a celebrity panel of well-known entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and investors.

The top three teams will each get $5,000 of credits for Google Cloud Platform, allowing the startups to build, deploy and run web applications and mobile app backends, without having to worry about infrastructure or scalability.

Peterson is no stranger to competition. In 2013, he won second place in the third annual Pirate’s Pitch, the University’s venture fund competition sponsored by the Stillman School’s Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.

Congratulations Taseen and best of luck!
