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!
