We also speak with Landon Casey, recent MSU graduate and student entrepreneur. Casey explains that through his venture of having a product in the E-Center, he recognized how much easier it was for an entrepreneur to talk about their product to investors or customers when there was a prototype for it. Casey demonstrates a new prototype made for school children to help them learn their multiplication tables that functions through a phone app and a medical device that tracts data for physical therapy patients.
