We held our final Camp BizSmart session at Santa Clara University, sponsored by the Leavey School of Business and the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship where six teams competed for first place. 4 NeuroSky teams and 2 Zero Motorcycles teams brought their best performances to Microsoft Corporation on August 11.
Our panel of judges included: Maigread Eichten, Bill Reichert, Harry Motro and Rick Reis.
The judges again decided to award a second place prize for “Most Innovative Design and Go to Market Idea”.
NeuroSky 3 takes the award for their design of “Soccertes”! Team members are: Kaili Sun (CEO), Ketan Kapre (CIO), Ryan Decker (CTO), Vineet Tummala (CMO), Elisabeth Siegel (CSO), Steven Chung (CFO).
And first place went to…
Zero Motorcycles 2! Team members are: Nikita Vemuri (CEO), Rohan Vembar (CIO, CTO), Anika Krishnan (CMO), George Lu (CSO), Dylan Patel (CFO).
Zero Motorcycles teams were challenged to design a cool all-electric mini-moto for 9 – 17 year olds. The team’s solution caters to both riders through the “cool factor”, as well as to parents through innovative safety features. WAGIC’s rendering of the winning design, the “DB40 Electric Motor Bike”, showcases the sleek look and customizable colors aimed at teens.
The Zero Motorcycles team has been invited to present their winning product and business plan to company executives at Zero Motorcycles headquarters in Scotts Valley.
