The winner of an "elevator pitch" competition due to be held at the MEMS Executive Congress coming up November 5 to 7 in Scottsdale, Arizona, could win a grant valued at $160,000 and one year's free membership of the MEMS Industry Group (MIG).
The event, organized by MIG, is an annual executive forum aimed at promoting the commercialization of MEMS and sensors.
MIG is inviting startups, established companies, researchers and individual entrepreneurs that have an idea or product capable of being launched within the next three years to apply for its second annual elevator pitch session.
If selected, Elevator Pitch finalists will get the chance to present in front of more than 200 attendees of MEMS Executive Congress, including a panel of judges who will select the winner.
Finalists will be competing for an Innovation Grant (iGrant) provided by MIG member companies, Rogue Valley Microdevices Inc. and Sustainable Valley Technology Group. The winner may choose to partake of the grant and its benefits, which include: access to a fabrication laboratory, device design and layout consultation, process engineering support and consultation, use of cleanroom and manufacturing facilities, grant application investment, legal, financial and marketing mentoring.
