Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 5th, we will be profiling every student participating in the YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Babacar M’baye, CEO of Germ-Free Hands.
Babacar has taken his passion for public health and his love for innovation to develop an affordable and quality product to improve the quality of life for many of his customers. Germ-Free Hands provides customers with a handheld device that protects you from exposure to germs on the New York City Subway by giving you a protective barrier from the germ ridden pole. This device was created through Babacar’s academic experiences in his entrepreneurship and history of design classes he took at Brooklyn International High School (BIHS). After graduating from BIHS, Babacar plans to attend and finish college at CUNY.
