Student-Created 'InfernoGuard' Featured For Recent Success
Updated: Apr 10
Lehigh News featured student venture InfernoGuard LLC, co-founded by Lehigh University first-year student Zoe Sherman '25, for its success across multiple pitch competitions, including at a Baker Institute EUREKA! Venture Program Pitch Night in the Fall 2021.
Sherman and the InfernoGuard co-founders have since gone on to win the $100,000 Climate Change Grand Prize during the Arizona State University Innovation Open in February. They also took the top $20,000 prize in Johns Hopkins University’s FastForward U: Fall 2021 Fuel Demo Day, during which teams have the opportunity to pitch their venture to a curated audience. The students also are finalists in the TigerLaunch student-run entrepreneurship competition which will take place at Princeton University next month.
Sherman and her childhood friends Kevin Kaspar, a sophomore at Northwestern University; Nandita Balaji, a sophomore at Johns Hopkins University, and Shreyas Bhasin, a sophomore at Wake Forest University, all attended Providence Day School, a private college preparatory school in Charlotte, N.C.
