Campus-wide award for most market-ready innovation
University of Wisconsin-Madison and Perkins Coie, Madison
Student participation in competitive entrepreneurship has reached impressive levels at UW-Madison.
To help students with the best, highest-potential ideas navigate the commercialization process and implement business plans, Perkins Coie sponsors a $10,000 “best of show” award for a student project that is most ready
for market launch.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison and Perkins Coie LLC have established the award to encourage creative thinking, innovation and entrepreneurship.
The award highlights the strength of Perkins Coie as a national leader in business law and intellectual property protection. It also meshes with UW-Madison’s commitment to fostering greater economic impact through its innovation and entrepreneurship programs.
Innovative Minds underscores 2012-2013 as the UW-Madison “Year of Innovation,” with programs aimed at highlighting innovation in teaching, research and beyond-the-classroom experiences.
This campus-wide priority extends the many successful innovation competitions that focus on key processes,
from business plans, energy and sustainability to software and wireless design.
