$15,000 Winner of the Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge

Brian Von Herbulis, Team Rubicon BLM Program Coordinator, just took home a $15,000 first place prize for his tech-focused idea at the 2017 Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge. Class I, V, and VI (food, ammo, and booze....well not really booze) is often hard to re-supply for those on the front lines. Brian knows this from experience as a commander of warriors in Afghanistan, and he used that knowledge and a lot of ingenuity to develop a one-time use drone that glides to predetermined coordinates with almost 700 lbs of supplies. He says this isn't limited to military use because there is much more this technology can do in terms of opportunity and capability. Think of the potential for disaster relief or support to wildland fire fighters! 

The Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge was hosted by the Boise State University Venture College and was open to any college or graduate student throughout the state of Idaho. Brian competed against over 70 other entrepreneurs, ideas, and teams.

Brian is the epitome of "Lead. Learn. Inspire." and we just want to congratulate him on a hard earned and much deserved first place prize. Nicely done!
