About this event

About Catch: 
Catch eliminates the need to use frustrating breakout rooms during virtual networking events and allows virtual attendees to connect and interact more easily and effectively. 

About Catch Founder: 
Gavin is a Maryland native and senior at Michigan State University, studying Finance, commissioning into the Army as a Logistics Officer. In the past, Gavin started Crown Mallard Systems, with which his team developed an innovative packaging and storage system for disposable gloves for the medical industry, taking his company to XLerate Health, a nationally renowned healthcare accelerator. In 2020, Gavin started Catch as a way better to facilitate socialization in social settings, such as concerts, but as a result of the pandemic, has pivoted Catch into a platform to facilitate more effective virtual networking, and what it is today.

Focus of the Event: 
1)   Learn more about the Founder and Startup
2)  View Demo of the Catch App
