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 2014 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.
