The 12th edition of the InVenture Prize — sometimes affectionately called American Idol for nerds — comes to its dramatic conclusion March 11 with the televised live finals.
After six months of developing and refining their ideas and two rounds of eliminations, six teams have emerged to pitch one last panel of judges: a group of entrepreneurs with nearly a half-dozen startups among them. The fast-paced finale will decide who gets $35,000 in prize money, help with patent filing, and a spot in a startup accelerator through Georgia Tech’s CREATE-X program.
