Congratulations to 26 IDEAS2010 Teams

The online votes are in! Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the beta testing of the Global Challenge online voting utility. We appreciate all of the teams who made huge GOTV drives and pushed the system. And thanks to everyone who took the time to register, get to know the teams and cast a vote.

We’ll announce the winner at the IDEAS2010 Awards Ceremony on May 3 in the Stata Center, 7:30pm in Building 32-123.

This year, 26 teams representing more than 90 students and their collaborators entered the IDEAS Competition. Come celebrate their innovative and entrepreneurial solutions to community development challenges at the annual MIT IDEAS Competition Awards Ceremony. Teams with projects judged to hold the greatest potential to bring innovation, feasibility and impact to communities will receive awards up to $8000 to implement their ideas for one year.

This year we are pleased to welcome inventor, philanthropist, and MIT alum Carl Bielenberg (SM ’75) as our keynote speaker. A pioneer in the field of appropriate technology, Carl has devoted his life to identifying, developing, and promoting crop processing and biomass energy technologies in Africa and New England.
