Five student ventures progress to compete for $100,000 prize in 2019 ASU Innovation Open
The Fulton Schools co-hosted the third annual ASU Innovation Open pitch competition at which 15 teams of students from leading universities involved in early-stage entrepreneurial ventures presented their business concepts to judges. Five teams were chosen to move on to the Innovation Open finals in February to vie for funding. Kyle Squires, dean of the Fulton Schools, gave the welcome address at the event. Each of the five top teams received a cash prize from Zero Mass Water, an ASU spinoff company led by Cody Friesen, a Fulton Schools associate professor of materials science and engineering.
