Congratulations to the student teams participating in the
2013 Clean Energy Challenge!
EcoSpinners, FlyDrive, NanoHarv & Smartility
CWRU teams comprised 4 of the 12 teams competing for the top spot in Ohio at OSU on January 29th. Although first place was awarded to Amplified Wind Solutions at Cleveland State University, our teams swept 2nd, 3rd and 4th place. Based on the strength of their business plans and presentations to the judges, EcoSpinners and NanoHarv have been invited to compete at the regional competition. The regional competition, hosted by Clean Energy Trust, is scheduled for April 4th. The winner will be awarded $100,000 from DOE.
Briliant students and extensive collaboration drove our success. GLEI sponsored the teams, along with support from CWRU’s Alumni Associate, Blackstone LaunchPad, Think[box], TiME, and STEP programs. The teams included students from the College of Arts & Sciences, Case School of Engineering, Weatherhead and the Cleveland Institute of Art at the graduate and undergraduate level. Each team worked closely with an alumni mentor in addition to the mentor assigned to them as part of the competition.
