Two ACC-related innovation opportunities coming up, with deadlines fast approaching. Both are chances for Syracuse University students to present their research and venture ideas at events that bring together the best and brightest from the ACC’s 15 schools :

January 31 is the deadline for students to apply to the ACC InVenture Prize Competition – https://www.syracuse.edu/inventure. A finalist team from Syracuse University will be flown to Atlanta for the competition at Georgia Tech, and have an opportunity to win part of $30,000 in cash prizes, along with significant media exposure.  The event is televised and live streamed. Details are in the attached overview and at http://accinventureprize.com/

March 1 is the deadline to apply for Meeting of the Minds, a research and innovation conference at Duke. Each of the ACC’s schools will select six undergraduates to present at the conference. Students of all disciplines can apply to present their original research or creative project, which needs to be under the mentorship of a faculty member.
