Team Regen, a group of high school TiE Young Entrepreneurs (TYE), won the top award at the TYE High School Entrepreneurship competition held at Westin Hotel in Atlanta. The season started with 300 students from 15 high schools and 18 universities mentored by 180 entrepreneurs.
For the competition, Team Regen chose to tackle the problem of burn victims. Every year, there are almost half a million burn victims in the U.S. alone and about 11 million worldwide. For their solution, they came up with a new method to use placental stem cells in a gel format to provide efficient and affordable burn treatment to those who have suffered the terrors of burns. The science behind the therapeutic power of placenta stem cells is that they are self-replicating and have the ability to turn into any type of cell. The advantages of Team Regen’s solution over traditional treatments like skin grafting include lower cost per procedure and easy application by a mid-level practitioner. It’s also less painful and less invasive, and the treatment will regenerate healthy natural skin. Team Regen, listed above, was mentored by David Feldman, a successful entrepreneur.
