The Ohio Clean Energy Challenge brings together some of Ohio’s best and brightest college students to compete for $10,000 to support their clean energy business.
Presented by the University Clean Energy Alliance of Ohio (UCEAO) and NorTech, the 2013 Ohio Clean Energy Challenge is a clean energy student business plan competition designed to provide student entrepreneurs with the opportunity to showcase their energy technology and business plans; receive university and industry support and feedback; gain exposure within the venture capital and funding community; and compete for cash prizes to support their technology and business plan.
On January 29, 2013, the semi-finalist student teams will present live business pitches to a panel of judges comprised of clean energy entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders. The winner of the Ohio Competition will receive the $10,000 state prize and go on to compete for the $100,000 grand prize at the Midwest regional competition on April 4, 2013, in Chicago, Ill., and a place in the National competition in Washington, D.C.
