When Amaan Rumi’s business incubator team at Westlake High School came up with the idea to create an app to help people manage their medications, track competing drugs, patient allergies, and more, he thought of his grandmother. I remembered.

“My first thought was what had happened to my grandmother. was,” he said. “I thought this was a way to prevent people like Grandma from being readmitted. It’s actually a very big problem.”

A team of 5 spent a year putting together a business plan and winning as part of the Business Incubator class. In May, he won $15,000 in a school pitch competition. A few months later, in July, the team was selected to compete in the national competition, which they also won.
