Two Alabama Teams in the Running for Global Venture Challenge 2010

Teams from both UA and UAH have been selected to advance to the semi-final round of the 2010 Global Venture Challenge hosted March 25-26 by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. (Link)

What a great showing by teams from two of our local universities. These are the kind of achievements we need to support and applaud.

According to the website:

"Global Venture challenge is an educational competition featuring entrepreneurial and technology-based business proposals presented by graduate student teams from around the world.

The teams will be judged by panels of energy executives, venture capitalists, technologists, entrepreneurs and legal experts. The winning team will receive $25,000."
Glenn Kinstler and Alabama Launchpad have done a wonderful job putting a spotlight on technology entrepreneurship in our state universities, but we can always stand to see success in national forums as well.

Good job.
