The Lab-Corps Pitch Competition at Argonne National Laboratory is the final stage for participation in the prestigious Lab-Corps training program.
The competition takes place on Friday, April 17, from 2-4 p.m. at Argonne. Register for the event.
Fermilab staff are encouraged to attend and support their colleagues. While there, you can find out more about the wide range of technologies under development at Argonne. Everyone is welcome to attend this event, which is open to the public.
Six teams from Argonne will each make a five-minute pitch of their value proposition to a panel of four industry experts. Each pitch will be followed by a five-minute question-and-answer session. The panel will then make a decision, and the names of the winning teams will be announced. The winning teams will each receive $75,000 to be spent on Lab-Corps training and commercialization of their technology.
Lab-Corps is a new Department of Energy program that gives national laboratory staff the opportunity to determine if their technology is suitable for commercialization. The program is centered on iterating a business model canvas and customer discovery process.
