Vukasinovic, founder and CEO of Emozia, graduated from NRHS in 2010 before studying computer science and neuroscience at Binghamton University. Emozia uses systemic analysis to help individuals, companies and researchers harness the power of mobile sensor data, as well as create smarter technology and emotionally intelligent products and services. 

The founders of nonprofit StartOut launched the #OutEntrepreneur video campaign to shatter the business world's "glass closet."

“Our work is not done until every single LGBT entrepreneur can unleash their potential, for all of society’s benefit," said Executive Director Andres Wydler.

Competing LGBT entrepreneurs are asked to share their success story in a two-minutes-or-less video to inspire others to start successful businesses. 

The campaign uses the hashtags #OutEntrepreneur and #StartOut in an effort to increase public visibility and awareness for LGBT business leaders. 

A panel of judges will select up to 10 finalists at the end of March before voting for no more than three winners. 

Competition winners will receive a complimentary StartOut membership and expert consultation for their business.
