Winners of the Fifth Annual VT KnowledgeWorks Entrepreneurship Challenge were announced Wednesday.
Keraesthetics and NanoSpin were the two winning concepts selected to receive $100,000 worth of mentorship and business support for two years.
Keraesthetics uses keratin biomaterials as a tissue bulking product that can be used for wrinkle reduction and tissue reconstruction. NanoSpin is a computer cooling system that uses a liquid dispersion of magnetic nanoparticles to dissipate excess heat.
PureAir: Emergency Asthma and COPD Inhalers was named the winning student concept. Stephen Epstein, creator of PureAir, won $10,000 in scholarships and a summer workspace at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center.
Epstein will advance to the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Student Business Concept Challenge in August.
