Inspiration and collaboration propel winning EyeTalk team

EyeTalk began as a Florida International University business professor’s social entrepreneurship challenge to students last fall.

Four students who stepped up — Viurniel Sanchez, Jesus Amundarain and Esam Mashni, all engineering graduate students, and Pia Celestino, a communications undergraduate who graduated last week — not only came up with a prototype for an innovative pair of glasses to help the severely visually impaired to hear written text, they also produced a solid business plan to bring it to market. EyeTalk is the first-place winner in the Business Plan Challenge FIU Track and was named the Challenge Champion.
