    Rowan student wins Business Plan Competition for tire inflation device

    Five students have received cash prizes for the business plans they developed for Rowan University’s Business Plan Competition.

    The year-long contest ended with judging by a panel of business professionals. More than 50 plans were submitted, but junior Ryan Ritchie won the top prize.

    The social science/humanities major won $5,000 for his Spider Gauge device that allows a mechanic to inflate multiple truck tires at once while automatically regulating the pressure.


    Four other students won second and third place, and two honorable mention prizes.
