Duke Start-up Challenge Elevator Pitch Competition Finals

So the final round was held on 11/20/09 and neither General Nano nor Medici Medical Technologies won the Elevator Pitch Finals. I was disappointed, but I am over it now. The money would have been great, but the truth is that we don’t need the money right now (at least the amount that was being awarded). Biogenic Medical Devices won the Judges’ Choice and The Produce Purity Project won the Audience Choice. I thought all 14 pitches were really good. It was a competitive field.

Both General Nano and Medici Medical Technologies are applying for grants in the amount of $1 million and $20K, respectively. We’ll just have to try again with Duke on January for the Executive Summary Competition and the Business Plan Competition ($25K). I’ll post videos of our pitches from YouTube once they are posted. Thanks for all those who came out and supported!
