"Given our commitment to inspire the next generation of problem solvers through our Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) initiative, we are very excited to support a competition that gives young and promising entrepreneurs the opportunity to bring innovative ideas to life," said Tessie Topol, senior director, strategic philanthropy,  Time Warner Cable. "We are also pleased to have two senior Time Warner Cable employees on the judging panel this year. Congratulations to all of the finalists and their efforts in developing ideas that will one day make a difference in society."

From medicine to ethical iPhone hacking to radio stations in the cloud, students launched projects they hope will become the next big thing. Faculty and industry mentors helped the student teams research and shape their projects.

Judges selected these finalists:
