Bellingham, Washington, USA (PRWEB) January 10, 2014

Two dozen aspiring entrepreneurs who are out to change the world through photonics and build careers in the process have been named as semi-finalists in the 2014 SPIE Startup Challenge.

The semi-finalists will compete in a pitch contest before a panel of business development experts and venture capitalists at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco in February. Winners will be announced at the event.

Top prize is $10,000 plus $5,000 in credit toward equipment from Edmund Optics. The second-place finisher will win $5,000, and the third $2,500. Cash prizes are funded by Founding Sponsor Jenoptik with additional support from Trumpf, Open Photonics, and Knobbe Martens.

SPIE will provide support for winners to attend a week-long entrepreneur “boot camp” for further help in refining their ideas.
