Teams to Face Off Thursday in Finals of UCSB New Venture Competition

Six of UC Santa Barbara’s most innovative and tech-entrepreneurial teams will compete for cash prizes and an opportunity to present their ideas to potential investors during the New Venture Competition from 3 to 7 p.m. this Thursday, May 22, in the Corwin Pavilion at UCSB.

Sponsored by UCSB’s Technology Management Program, the New Venture Competition brings the business skills and technology know-how of its participants together with opportunities to collaborate with leaders in the tech industry.

Innovations from this year’s teams range from scientific breakthroughs in medical technology, enhanced software that supplements GPS and alternative light sources to technologies that have the potential to transform the Central Coast’s food and beverage industry.

Winners will be selected by a panel of experts and the audience.

The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP by clicking here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
