Temple Law Student’s Firm is A Finalist in Fox School’s Be Your Own Boss Bowl

April 16, 2013 - MIGWiz, a firm founded by Jason Lamb '13 and business partner Rahman Carter, is a finalist in the Fox School's Be Your Own Boss Bowl business plan competition, which encourages and supports the launch of sustainable new firms. Firms will compete for a grand prize of over $125,000 in cash and professional products and services. The total prize pool is over $200,000. 

As described by Lamb, "MIGWiz addresses the frustration of MIG welders, caused by the constant removal of stubborn spatter from the MIG welding gun." Lamb explained further that "spatter is molten metal that can build up and clog the welding gun during the welding process. The current MIG welding plier has only limited utility as a spatter removal device, and often the welder must stop work and use separate files and chipping tools to clean spatter. MIGWiz adds a file grooved surface to the pliers' jaws, allowing for easy removal of spatter build up without interrupting the welding process. This innovation saves time, increases productivity and lowers costs, creating value for both welders and welding shop owners. Through our patented MIG plier design, we hope to gain a foothold in the $28 million per year US MIG welding plier market."

Lamb's business partner is Rahman Carter, a welder first class with six years experience and the inventor of the patented improvement to the standard MIG welding plier. Carter is a former student of the Fox School.

The Be Your Own Boss Bowl results will be announced on at a reception at the Fox School on April 25, 2013.
