Inc. magazine’s annual roundup of the nation’s “16 coolest college startups” includes two companies founded by current and former UCI students. Versafit, an app that matches gym rats, power walkers and other exercise buffs with workout partners, was launched in January by MBA student Julian Clarke and Paul Merage School of Business alumnus Alton Chislom ’15. The magazine also honored CubeForme, a monthly subscription service that surprises customers with new gadgets, games or art pieces created via 3-D printer. UCI computer science major Nick Nguyen co-founded the company.
