A group of students from Syracuse University won first place in the New York State Business Plan Competition at the University of Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.
The students have developed the company "Helios" to commercialize an ultraviolet engineering technology to be used for the sterilization of medical tools/equipment. The competition provided Helios with a total of $50,000 to bring their technology to the market.
Helios was not the only group of Syracuse University students to win the competition. Broodr.com, an aggregated marketplace for unique products, designs and inventions, walked away from the competition with $10,000 in funding.
