In addition to the cash prizes, successful applicants will gain exposure to investors, potential partners, and industry sponsors. This year, the Shale Gas Innovation Contest is co-sponsored by Ben Franklin Technology Partners (http://www.benfranklin.org (http://www.benfranklin.org/))
Bill Hall, Director of the SGICC remarked, “What’s great about this competition is that a simple online summary is all that’s required to get started. Any idea related to the shale gas space is eligible - even if the product or service has already been commercially developed. Examples include vehicle conversion, natural gas utilization products/services, remote site monitoring, natural gas or NGL conversion technologies, and water remediation for fracking operations”.
Finalists will be chosen by a panel of industry experts. To download an application, visit www.sgicc.org and click on the $75,000 2013 Shale Gas Innovation Contest tab. Deadline to enter is February 1, 2013.
