Keiana Cave began researching the 2010 BP oil spill in her hometown of New Orleans with Tulane University at 15. She designed a method that allows the Environmental Protection Agency to identify certain toxins that form as photoproducts during oil spills. But she soon got tired of the academic route and this past summer attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp, where she developed a molecule that could become the world’s next dominant oil spill dispersant. Now 18, she has raised $1.2 million in funding from Chevron to continue researching the molecule. How can the MIT Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp shape your future?
