Y-Prize Competition 2016–2017 Kick-Off & Reception

Monday, September 26, 2016, 6:30-9:00 p.m.

New technologies transform the world. But if those technologies remain confined to a laboratory, they never get the chance to reach their full, life-changing potential.

The Y-Prize Competition brings students together across disciplinary lines and challenges them to take emerging technologies out of the lab and into the marketplace. This year, we’re featuring two novel nanomaterials developed by Penn Engineering faculty.

Now it’s your turn to propose the best commercial applications for these exciting technologies. We invite you to unleash your creativity, build your entrepreneurial skills, and team up with some great people along the way.

The winning team will receive $10,000 to help launch their business, and may be eligible for fast-tracking into the semi-final round of the Penn Wharton Startup Challenge. Three finalist teams will each receive $2,500.

Please join us for the Y-Prize Kick-Off on Monday, September 26th, 6:30–9:00 p.m. at Jon M. Huntsman Hall G06. Penn faculty will explain the technologies and share details about the contest. We also invite you to stay for a networking reception immediately following the presentations!
