Winners will receive travel grants, ranging in value from $1,000-$2,000, that can be used to cover expenses related to research trips or travel to other conferences (domestic or international).
VentureLab's 2022 Innovation Competition
Wednesday, January 26
If you're doing research that could solve real-world problems -- and you can explain how in three minutes! -- apply now for VentureLab's 2022 Innovation Competition, held in conjunction with CRIDC 2022.
In the Innovation Competition, up to 10 Georgia Tech grad student finalists will offer three minute presentations to a panel of judges. They'll describe their research, its potential applications, and how it might be brought to market, and then respond to questions from the judges. The first place winner will receive a $1000 cash prize, and two runners-up will receive $500 each. All participants will have the opportunity to meet with VentureLab staff to explore grants and programs that can help them pursue a startup business or technology licensing opportunities.
The Innovation Competition is open to all Georgia Tech MS and Ph.D. students. Competitors who are not in the Atlanta area or who are isolating for health reasons can participate via teleconference. The competition will be held in the Hodges Room of Tech Square's Centergy building (75 5th St NW) from 2 PM to 4 PM on Wednesday, January 26.
