A Mehdavi Student student Developed a Winning App through the Student Entrepreneurship Program in the Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC)

As Salaam Alaikum Rahmathullahi wa Barakatahu,
We at Mehdavia Times take this opportunity to congratulate Janab Malik Shamshuddin Sahab for the great achievement of his son Salman Javid Malik who Developed a Winning App called “Pick You Up", through the Student Entrepreneurship Program in the Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC) a platform to start an entrepreneurial journey at NYIT.

We wish him all the best in all his future endeavors.

Malik developed the app with his classmate Vignesh Harish, a master’s candidate in information, network, and computer security, through the Student Entrepreneurship Program in the Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC) and under the guidance of Director Michael Nizich, Ph.D. “[The Student Entrepreneurship Program] encourages students to be a part of the ETIC and provides a gateway towards starting an entrepreneurial journey at NYIT,” said Malik. “The workshop inspired us in developing a comprehensive business plan and enabled us to collaborate with fellow students.”

After learning about the Long Island Business Plan Competition (which was held in Long Beach, N.Y., in April), Harish and Malik immediately jumped on the opportunity. The annual competition encourages students from Long Island colleges and universities to think like entrepreneurs and develop their own business. The top three winning teams advanced to the New York State Business Plan Competition (NYSBPC) in Albany.

The duo’s initial excitement about entering the competition quickly gave way to nerves. “We were not sure if the idea was good enough,” said Harish.

Luckily, Nizich was there to allay their jitters. “He has been an incredible mentor,” Harish said. “Professor Nizich inspired and motivated us and told us the project would be a success. He explained to us what to expect from the competition and how to present our idea.”

Harish and Malik’s innovative app took third place. They advanced to the NYSBPC where they competed against more than 100 teams from colleges and universities in New York State’s 10 economic development regions: Western New York, the Finger Lakes, Southern, Tier, Central New York, Mohawk Valley, North Country, Capital Region, Mid-Hudson, New York City, and Long Island.

“Our idea received positive feedback,” said Malik. Added Harish, “People were very welcoming to the idea of an Uber-style pick-up truck. After the competition, the judges and co-participants told us our idea is something that could help the everyday consumer.”

While they didn’t walk away with a prize at NYSBPC, Harish and Malik plan to move forward with their idea and build a prototype and roll out the application. “NYIT provided us with a platform to learn and develop our ideas and provided the resources,” said Harish. “The ETIC is a great development space for any start-up project.”
