The Garnet Baltimore Research and Entrepreneurial Scholars program seeks to connect Rensselaer undergraduates with research and entrepreneurial experiences.
As a Garnett Baltimore Entrepreneurship Scholar, Numfor developed his ed-tech venture called ViE. ViE - The Virtual Engagement Platform - is a web application that makes college courses more engaging and makes it easier for instructors to track their course engagement. ViE is currently being used by multiple courses at RPI and Lincoln University.

"The Garnett Baltimore Entrepreneurship program gave me the means to get my idea off the ground and into the hands of real people. I also learned a lot about entrepreneurship from my meetings with the Severino Center Staff. I'm thankful for the program and I'm continuing to grow my business now that I've graduated."
