Got a bright nano-idea?

And no, the title doesn’t mean a really tiny idea. If you’re into nanotechnology–whether you’re a scientist or a business person–and you’ve got a great idea for how to create a new product or service related to this burgeoning field, today you can feel encouraged–a few from the group of people invited from around the world who submitted their ideas this year are each going to walk away with about 10 grand today.

The 16 finalists in the International Nanotechnology Business Idea Competition are gathering at Case Western Reserve’s Dively Center to see who takes home the prize money. It should be fascinating listening to their presentations (going on right now til about noon). If you’re in Cleveland and you’d still like to run down there and listen, visit this site or call Suzette at 216.368.0598.
