Governor's School for Entrepreneurs
Week 3 and Demo Day
As GSE 2018 comes to a close, we reflect on our final week. Demo Day was an unforgettable event, showcasing the transformation of our young entrepreneurs from day 1 to day 21 of our impactful program. Thanks to our supporters, judges, and sponsors for making the immersive GSE experience a reality for Kentucky teens!
Day of Entrepreneurship
Our Day of Entrepreneurship was a success! Entrepreneurial entities from around the state participated in a discussion panel and showcase fair with our young entrepreneurs. GSE entrepreneurs are aware of several options Kentucky offers when it comes to continuing their entrepreneurial journey after GSE.

2018 GSE Highlights
Demo Day 2018
1st Place - Dose Defense
Dose Defense created an insert for prescription pill bottles that limits the number of pills removed at a time to one. Aiming to be the next industry standard for child proof medication, the reverse funnel shaped design can be manipulated to fit a variety of pill sizes and shapes.
2nd Place - CardiaCare
CardiaCare created a 3 pronged modern ECG solution. They engineered and printed a cheaper, quicker, and easier to use ECG. Their solution is 96.8% accurate at detecting the top 5 cardiovascular diseases.
3rd Place - Quick Haul
Communication gaps in the construction industry cause delays and underemployment, resulting in lost wages for several demographics. Quick Haul created an application that connects contractors to haulers. Here, they can monitor shipments, message and communicate easily, create detailed profiles and provide ratings and reviews, and other needed features. Their app solution digitizes the construction industry, making construction needs and connections easier than ever to find and manage.
