CNSE, in partnership with UAlbany's School of Business, the Lally School of Management and Technology at Rensselaer, and Union Graduate College School of Management will organize the region's first business plan competition with a focus on energy technology.  The event will be held at CNSE's facilities on April 28, 2010. 

Current students from accredited colleges are invited to submit a business plan around a student-born innovation that is designed for a currently unmet need.  The top applications will be selected to present at CNSE in the final round.  The three best rated teams will earn a prize, with the first place winner receiving $10,000. 

Teams should have at least two members, with a maximum of six members (excluding the advisor).  Students from different academic areas are encouraged to work together to create the strongest team possible.  One faculty member must be listed as an advisor for the team, offering guidance, support, and technical expertise. 

The competition will encourage students to fully engage in their research and allow them to gain valuable experience through presenting their business plan to industry executives and investors.  By creating multi-disciplinary teams, students from different departments within a college or university can take advantage of this unique experience.
