Last week, the 12 US Imagine Cup finalists will fly to San Francisco to compete for a spot into the WW Imagine Cup Semi-Finals and $4,000. These students have already moved through two rounds of competition to land a coveted spot in the US Finals. Each team will pitch its project and answer questions from a judging panel comprised of highly respected Silicon Valley technology leaders and entrepreneurs. One winning team will be selected in each of the following categories: Games, Innovation, and World Citizenship. The entire event will be streamed to the Channel9 homepage. Beyond the competition, students will also experience the Silicon Valley startup ecosystem first-hand. They will visit accelerators, co-working facilities and startups, and learn from technology leaders what it takes to launch a startup.
