I4 Competition

Identification. Ideation. Innovation. Implementation.

This competition is open to all undergraduate students. The idea is to form a team, find an initial faculty adviser (does not have to be BME Faculty), and develop the idea in an initial pitch that will take place November 19, 2015 at First Flight Venture Center in Research Triangle Park. The submission of the idea is due on November 2, 2015.

Once your idea has been pitched, you will have the opportunity to use feedback from the pitch session to work on your Idea, further refining it, into a 2nd pitch opportunity on February 23, 2016 in RTP (Submission will be by February 2, 2016, and you will have an industry adviser added to your team).

The final pitch competition will be on April 26, 2016 in RTP and the winners will actually get significant funding (TBD) to continue developing their Idea.

The submission forms and important Information are in the above website. The submission forms tell you to submit the forms to Dr. Cheryl Simpson.

Dr. Shawn Gomez is the director of the I4 Challenge and questions should be directed to him, smgomez@ncsu.edu
