It’s a virtual finale this Thursday for participants in BioTN’s “Scipreneur Challenge”

The finale for participants in the BioTN Foundation‘s “Scipreneur Challenge” will be held virtually this Thursday beginning at 7 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. CDT.

The entrepreneurship-based competition organized by the BioTN Academic Alliance in collaboration with area universities leads students through an eight-week training program that showcases science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related technologies generated at the area’s premier research institutions. The students are provided with entrepreneurship training that leads to Thursday’s mock pitch for investment in the technology.

Participating teams, comprised of research scientists, business students, clinicians and mentors, present a business plan and compete to win prizes in the final pitch competition, judged by area business leaders and investors.
