Cambridge-trained engineers take on the world's best
A team of Cambridge-trained technology entrepreneurs from around the UK have reached the semi-finals of a premier US business plan competition under an innovative UK Government funded programme.
The team, made up of engineers and scientists from Singapore, Canada, India and Mauritius will be heading for the States in March.
The University of San Francisco's International Business Plan Competition will see twenty top teams from around the world compete for the $25,000 first prize and the opportunity to pitch to a panel of leading investors. According to Professor Mark Cannice, Professor of Entrepreneurship at San Francisco, "they should be proud of this accomplishment, as the competition for selection for one of the few invitations has been fierce with many high quality submissions from universities around the world."
