BulbHead.com Inventors Day for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

BulbHead.com Inventors Day for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

A lucky bunch of Montclair State University students are about to embark on the thrill of their young careers!

On May 2, the University’s Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship will be hosting the BulbHead.com Inventors Day for Aspiring Entrepreneurs. This product pitch competition will award $80,000 to the winning student startup, and is the largest purse of any collegiate pitch contest in New Jersey.

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino (MSU Class of ’06) spoke with the man responsible for this exciting event, AJ Khubani (MSU Class of ’84) and founder of TeleBrands and BulbHead.com.

“I think all entrepreneurs that do really well want to give back, and this is the perfect place for me to do so,” explains Khubani. “I started my business while I was still a student at Montclair State University, and it’s fun to help the next generation of big ideas.” 

“Bulbhead.com Day” started five years ago. The first year saw four groups apply with the winning prize $10,000. This year, over fifty groups applied and 14 semifinalists will be participating in the annual pitch showcase

“It really has become a huge event. The room is packed with friends and family cheering on their loved ones, and I’m excited to see the event’s continued growth!” 

Another day, another winning idea from AJ Khubani!

Priya Virmani on Privée by Priya

Priya Virmani of Privée by Priya stopped by the #HipNJ Studio to tell our own Maria Falzo all about her wardrobe consultant business and how she helps women transition from daytime errands to nighttime fun! 
Priya, a mother who lives in New Jersey, understands how important it is for the on-the-go mom to have efficient yet stylish options right at their fingertips.
“I wear my yoga pants to the gym, and I plan which layers to keep in the backseat of my car based on where else the day is taking me,” explained Priya. For our filming, she still had on black yoga pants from her morning workout. But with a quick change into some high heels, a fancy blouse and bold blazer, she was camera ready in no time!
There are many ways Priya helps her clients. At her Privée Style Studio, located in Short Hills, she spends time with you to learn about your wardrobe. She can help you declutter your existing wardrobe, identify new chic pieces you may need and help you flawlessly and effortlessly integrate them into your newly cleaned closet! Having an empowered wardrobe breeds confidence, explains Priya.
