  • Print

A group of students from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio won the $20,000 first place prize this weekend in the 10th annual Stu Clark Investment Competition at the Fort Garry Hotel.

Their business pitch, Disease Diagnostics, was for a new way to diagnose malaria that is already receiving interest from health authorities in malaria-affected regions.

Organized by the Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship at the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business, the competition attracts high-powered business school teams from across North America and around the world.

Second place and $10,000 went to a team from Northwestern University in Chicago for Innoblative Designs, a breast cancer treatment technology; third place and $5,000 went to a team from University of Louisville for Systemica Health, a new technology to treat gum disease; and fourth place and $2,000 went to a team from the University of Manitoba for Exigence Technologies, an antimicrobial technology to deal with tough bacteria on hospital fabrics.

Systemica Health, Disease Diagnostics and Exigence Technologies placed first to third in the one-minute Idea Pitch portion of the competition and teams from Johns Hopkins University, Thammasat University in Thailand and the University of Arkansas placed first to third in the logo competition.
