Strathclyde University students head to Texas competition after winning loneliness app prize
App concept beats 46 other competitors to take it on to competition in Texas
A team of Strathclyde University students will soon head to Texas to take part in a competition after bagging a university prize with the creation of an app aiming to combat loneliness in older people.
The second year entrepreneurship undergraduates were challenged to develop an app that could help to solve a prevalent social issue. They then pitched their idea - an app named 'BeFriend' - to academics from the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship at Strathclyde.
