Bob Finke recognized and thanked all of the Lakeville Rotary Club YEA ( Young Entrepreneurs Academy) mentors and introduced our speaker YEA entrepreneur Jeremy Ziemer.
Jeremy Ziemer, creator of Spoil Alert, received $1,000 toward for his business this past March and was recognized as the overall winner of the event that qualified him to compete in the 2016 YEA Saunders Scholars national semifinals in Rochester, New York in May.
Jeremy explained how he came up with his idea for his business, Spoil Alert.  It included a discussion between his parents on how long a container of leftovers was in the refrigerator and would the food be spoiled when he took a bite of it. Spoil Alert was born from this experience as Jeremy imagined a timer that people could stick on their food storage ware to save them the agony of accidentally eating food that has gone bad.
Jeremy is ready to go forward with his product and he has spoken to the local area ACE Hardware Stores who have expressed an interest in caring the Spoil Alert once he has the manufacturing part of the process worked out. The cost of the Spoil Alert $ 12.99 and he is working on an app notification for phones and ipads.
Tim Roche let us know that YEA will be back with some modifications next year.  The program will start in November and end in March in time for the Spring Home Show. This will allow the students an opportunity to display and sell their products.
