Chilean Students Claim Top Prize

The $25,000 first prize in the Global Student Business Concept Challenge has gone to a student team from Pontifical Catholic University in Santiago, Chile. The concept the students pitched to potential investors was for Kimeltu, which produces a product that helps educators measure student performance.

The competition was part of a forum on student entrepreneurship put together by VT KnowledgeWorks. It ran for a week and the competition was held at the Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center.

Bio-Sense Diagnostics, from Kent, England, and OOHLALA Mobile, of Toron won runnerup prizes of $5,000 each.
