An Aggie startup grounded in new 3-D printing technology took grand prize in Houston at the 2016 Rice Business Plan Competition.

The student startup, TriFusion Devices, is a company that uses new technology involving 3-D printing to create custom designed items like prosthetic limbs in a fast and cheap way. The company was co-founded by Brandon Sweeney '18 and Blake Teipel '16, both doctoral candidates at A&M.

Drawing competitors from around the world, this was the first time a Texas A&M company has ever won the competition. 

TriFusion walked away with at least $300,000.
