Kevin Merlini – Founder of Clipboard+ posted on SparkPlug@Penn State this morning about our recent launch. Below is an excerpt from his post.

“It is definitely a relief to have our project go live, I’m really excited to see how things go from here. In the meantime we will be focused on promoting our project and trying to get the word out to as many people as possible. If anyone would like to talk to me more about my experience with this project, or is interested in pursuing a Kickstarter of their own, I would be happy to talk to you. Just shoot me an email at”

Lion Launch Pad

The Lion Launch Pad was an integral part in the success of Clipboard+. A special thanks to Liz Kisenwether and Robert Macy. Below is an a description of Lion Launch Pad.

The Lion Launch Pad (LionLP) is a business accelerator program for Penn State undergraduate students and student teams.  Based at Penn State University‘s University Park Campus, our program was created to help undergraduate student entrepreneurs convert innovative product and service concepts into viable start-up companies. Our vision of success is to have a team develop product, get revenue or funding, and move to next-level incubator programs.

Learning Factory

The Learning Factory helped Clipboard+ bring the initial designs for the Clipboard+ iPad and Clipboard+ Smartphone to life. Below is their mission.

“Our mission is to help bring the real-world into the classroom by providing engineering students with practical hands-on experience through industry-sponsored capstone design projects. In 2010/11, we completed a record 126 projects for 80 different sponsors and nearly 600 out of the 1460 engineering students that Penn State graduated participated in such a project.”

Pennsylvania State University

As students of Penn State University, we feel it is very important to thank the institution that gave Clipboard+ a chance for higher education. Thank you to all professors, peers and alumni for your care and support! We Are!!!
