SiNode Systems from Northwestern University won the 2013 National Clean Energy Business Plan Competition during the week of June 10. The competition, now in its second year, is part of President Obama’s Startup America Initiative that works to encourage and accelerate high-growth entrepreneurship by inspiring university teams across the country through business opportunities in clean energy.
After presenting their business plan to a panel of esteemed judges and live audience Wednesday, SiNode Systems was awarded more than $100,000 in cash and services (like technical, marketing, and legal assistance), provided by the competition’s sponsors. North Carolina A&T University’s team—Bioadhesive Alliance—won the People’s Choice Award, which was decided via a public vote on energy.gov. For the complete story, see the Energy Blog .
