A father-and-son team with an unusual design idea is partnering with Studio G at New Mexico State University’s Arrowhead Center to tighten their grip on a new golf industry niche.
Their product – Woodie Grips – is a hand-crafted, solid pine putter grip. Creators Tim and David Bowers are taking a swing at expanding their business, which got its start in David’s backyard shed, to the next level with a crowdfunding campaign on RocketHub to help them prepare for growing demand.
Arrowhead Center, in partnership with NMSU’s College of Engineering, has won a bid to the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps Teams Program. The program funds teams of researchers, entrepreneurial mentors, and students to work on bringing to market innovative technologies developed through NSF funding.
New Mexico State University engineering students Brendan Sullivan and Ember Krech are part of a cohort of 58 students from 26 higher education institutions across the United States recently named University Innovation Fellows by the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter). The University Innovation Fellows program empowers students to become agents of change at their schools.
The winning team from a recent Startup Weekend event at New Mexico State University’s Arrowhead Center is working to make its project, an organizational mobile application, a reality – but team leader Kenneth Jacobs said the value of Startup Weekend is about much more than any one business launch.
