Diego Mendoza-Moyers , from the Times Union Newspaper, wrote a wonderful article about our annual Innovation Competition which was on April 5th.

“Have you ever wondered if light can transport information? Or, if you're into beauty products, how you might find false eyelashes that last longer than a few uses? If you're a student, you might want a marketplace to buy and sell furniture, textbooks or other items you want to get rid of at the end of the semester.

Those are just some of the ideas students presented at the University at Albany's fourth annual Blackstone Launchpad Innovation Competition, a "Shark Tank" style business pitch competition that saw undergraduate and graduate students lay out their business plan in front of around a dozen judges.”
