Candice Blacknall and Chima Odinkemere are earning their respective MBA degrees and have launched an innovative technology platform in a space they know well - medical education. The two business students are also medical students and participants in the dual enrollment MD-MBA program, a partnership between Morehouse School of Medicine and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Recognizing the challenges faced by medical students to pursue and complete their medical studies, Candice and Chima created GABA Inc. Their research, encompassing 60 interviews with medical students from 12 institutions, revealed three pain points that deter nearly 3,000 medical students from completing their degrees.
GABA Inc. aims to close the gap by offering critical resources at the right time within its community of over 50 medical-student users. Recently, GABA was selected as one of 75 companies from a pool of 450 applicants to participate in Georgia Tech's CREATE X accelerator program and was awarded $4,000 in grant funding and business development services valued at $30,000.
Seeking to capitalize on this momentum and meet the challenge of raising additional funds, GABA is looking to expand its reach by raising $10,000. To support GABA founders and MSM students Candice and Chima, invest in their innovation by making a tax-deductible gift today.
