Enplug won the Consumer Electronics Show’s LaunchFest Startup Pitch Competition! Thank you Angel Launch for hosting this fun event. We competed against 8 other great startups ranging from a kickstarter for films to a carsharing company. I really enjoyed meeting the founders of these companies, who came from all parts of the US.
Nanoly Bioscience, the biotech company I founded in college, won 1st place in Social Innovation at the Intel Global Challenge on November 5-8! Nanoly develops polymers that enable vaccines to survive without refrigeration. The week-long competition was held at UC Berkeley and the Intel Headquarters in Santa Clara. Nanoly was selected to represent the USA in this challenge. There were 28 teams competing representing countries from Russia to Mexico to Bulgaria to China.
As a student at UC Berkeley, I would see banners for the Intel Challenge around campus each year. I always dreamed of being a part of the competition and being selected to represent the US. It was such a joy and honor when I found out we were chosen earlier this year!
Thank you Intel for this incredible opportunity to meet fellow entrepreneurs from around the globe!
My biotech startup, Nanoly Bioscience, is a Top 10 finalist for NASA’s $110K Award for businesses creating new technology that will benefit space. It’s been more than exciting that a project I started with my friend last year has been recognized by NASA!
It has been an incredible journey with the Nanoly team. I don’t think any of us realized, when we first started theorizing our technology solution, that it could be so transformative-let alone something that NASA might use. Hopefully, this demonstrates how important it is to always Think Big!
A collaboration between NASA and The Space Frontier, The NASA New Space Frontier Competition recognizes entrepreneurs developing supporting, problem-solving, and game-changing technologies for the space industry.
It’s been an honor to be featured as one of the Dell’s Social Innovation Challenge winners!
Peter Matheu, a research scientist in our Nanoly Biotech startup and a Cornell alum, and I spent this past week in Ithaca, New York, competing in Cornell’s Venture Challenge. The competition selected 5 finalist teams out of 70 entries. We were very excited to be in the top 5!
The competition was part of Entrepreneurship@Cornell’s 2-day celebration conference. Cornell alums, other college students, community members, and many others attended the event-packed conference. In addition to the competition, our Nanoly team also attended the judge’s feedback session, a networking reception, and award banquet. The final outcome of the competition:
1st place: Tadpoles
2nd place: Socratives
3rd place: Nanoly
We are so thrilled! We thank Cornell Venture Challenge’s organizing team and Cornell for this fantastic experience! Congratulations to Tadpoles and Socratives-your technologies are incredibly creative!
