DAVIDSON, N.C. -- A world-class collaborative space that's connecting students with entrepreneurs and companies recently opened in Davidson.
- Graduates created a drone pressure washer
- Device aims to make window washing safer
- Gov. Cooper toured the hub where the invention was created
Tuesday, Gov. Roy Cooper toured Davidson College's Hurt Hub which just opened in July.
The hub is where graduates Andrew Ashur, Adrian Mayans and David Danielson worked on their drone pressure washer called "Lucid." The massive contraption aims to make window washing safer by having a drone do the high flying work. Their idea took off so much so they started a business and are now making revenue.
Ashur and his teammates were winners in this past spring's Davidson Venture Fund. It's an annual competition where students and recent alumni compete for up to $25,000 of investment in their invention for profit ventures.
