BLACKSBURG, Virginia (WSLS) — Two students at Virginia Tech are working to become the next successful entrepreneurs.

K Alnajar and Drew Stegmaier are working on what they consider to be the next big thing.

“It’s one of the hardest things about being a student entrepreneur because you have to balance your work, you want a social life still, and you want this project to do really well. So it’s a challenge, but we’re doing as much as I can,” DrinkUp app co-founder, K Alnajar says.

The new app allows you to select the number of drinks you want, the type of drink, and then pay for it, all without having to struggle to order from the bartender.

The students plan to submit ‘DrinkUp’ to the App Store by the middle of April.
