Every entrepreneur wants to make money, but essentially what they’re working to create is a better life for humanity.

Student entrepreneurs at Arizona State University have invented software that tracks when people are in a mental health crisis, a game to help ease childhood anxiety, an innovative pool security monitor and an app that finds nearby parking spaces.

Those were among the two dozen ASU-affiliated startups that won more than $250,000 in investment funding at the Demo Day entrepreneurship competition on Friday. The projects are part of Venture Devils, a program in the Office of Entrepreneurship + Innovation at ASU that provides space, mentorship and access to funding to students, faculty, staff or community members. Nearly 100 ASU-affiliated teams pitched their ventures to a panel of judges at the daylong event, held at SkySong in Scottsdale.
