Speech Up is a mobile app for iOS that provides speech therapy exercises for kids. Speech Up offers exciting puzzles and challenges that children can solve by directly talking into the app. The team behind the project were recipients of one of four Cornell Tech Startup Awards in 2017, which includes 80,000 in pre-seed funding and 20,000 worth of co-working space in The Bridge at Cornell Tech.

"Everything that we have, everything that we are is in part due to Cornell Tech, due to New York City, and due to this new, radical shift in emphasis on tech and entrepreneurship in NYC. We have this space, we have capital, and we're getting connected to partnerships and companies and schools. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shoot for our dream."

The Speech Up team is: CEO David Cheng, Johnson Cornell Tech MBA '17; CTO Luis Serota,¿Cornell Tech MEng, Computer Science¿'17; and CPO Eliza Bruce, a 2017 MFA graduate of¿Parsons School of Design, who met her teammates through¿a collaboration¿between the two institutions.
