Nov 1, 2017 –

On September 14, Sandia scientists and engineers pitched innovations to a panel of local investors and members of the entrepreneurial community. The competition, hosted by Sandia Labs’ Entrepreneur Exploration Program and business accelerator ABQid, was part of a DOE initiative call Lab Bridge, aimed at inspiring inventors to take new lab technologies to market. The top prize went to Brent Houchens, Myra Blaylock and David Maniaci, for a novel approach to distributed wind power. They will represent Sandia Labs at a national competition in November for the chance to win $50,000 and a seat at an entrepreneurial training program called Energy I-Corps.
