A group of Clarkson freshmen athletes and business students are working to develop an adhesive spray to improve a hockey stick's grip.

The students, five of which are on the Clarkson Men's Hockey Team and one of which is on Clarkson's Baseball Team are taking "Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation I & II," Clarkson's crash courses in starting and running a business.

During freshman year, students work in groups to develop a business concept, formulate a business plan, pitch to live investors and open a real business. This first-year experience includes researching, developing, building and marketing a real product. The student athletes hope their product, called "Shaft Takk," will fill a niche in the sports equipment industry.
