"Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is once again planning to host a business competition in April. The new name is "Global Venture Challenge" and it will be held April 2 - 4, 2008, at ORNL. The new website, http://www.globalventurechallenge.com/, will be launched at the end of the month. The competition will once again use the Idea to Product competition format, but this year the focus will be on energy applications. At the end of this note is a list of ideas that would qualify for the competition.
This year, students will have an expanded program where they will be able to learn more about ORNL and spend time with key people in their particular areas of research and business. They will also have more time to interact with the venture capitalists and entrepreneurs that will be attending. ORNL management will be inviting leaders at key energy companies to participate as judges at the competition, so students will be able to network with potential employers in the energy industry."
