3rd Year UNB Student wins RBC Student Pitch Competition

Tags:

The third-year University of New Brunswick (UNB) business administration student, Holly Ayles has been recognized for her smartphone app that allows people with food allergies to find safe places to eat.

Drawing on a frightening experience two years ago in a restaurant, she found out that she has an allergy to tree nuts and going forward it became very hard for her to find places where she can safely eat.

So she set out to change that and she came up with an app, Have Food, where the user selects their dietary restrictions and the app will provide safe restaurants in major cities and tourist destinations across Canada.

Continuing from her first-place placement, Ayles doesn’t have a concrete timeline for full development of the app but will be taking courses through UNB’s Technology Management & Entrepreneurship program to further her knowledge of entrepreneurship and further refine her idea.
