Here’s a peak at Donna Simpson’s article in the NEPA Business Journal:
“Later this month, three new technology based businesses will be given an extra boost as winners of the TecBridge Business Plan Competition. In its 13th year, the competition has helped create businesses and grow the local economy by generating jobs and keepings some of the best and brightest college graduates in the region. Designed to stimulate innovative thinking and to leverage a technology-driven economy, the organizers will award over $100,000 in cash and in-kind services to the winners.
Shawn Mera of New Horizons Computer Learning Centers and Lynn Banta of Twin Stacks Center are Co-Chairs of this year’s event.

Aspiring or early-stage firms will less than $250,000 in gross revenues will compete in a second, non-collegiate division. Judges from the region will pick the winners in each division. Award dinner attendees will be able to vote on the Wild Card Winner of their choice via crowd sourcing, a component that is new to the event.
