Trainees enter business plan competition

Consistent with the theme of our IGERT project, each trainee cohort is required to take coursework at the UMass School of Management as part of their IGERT traineeship. At the end of this curriculum, students enter a business plan competition. This year as in past years, the IGERT students placed first in the first round competition. IGERT trainees Felicia Bokel, Craig Versek, and Monique Johnson won under the name Flexolyte Power Solutions, and Katrina Kratz was on the winning team of Bacteriotix.
