Industry needs new solutions and Georgia Tech has them

Information security students at Georgia Tech compete before venture capitalists and industry leaders at the Institute for Information Security & Privacy's "Demo Day Finale."  Five student teams will present TED-style talks about their research before an elite panel of business leaders, who then advise students about future considerations for commercialization. Research with the best chance of commercialization or demonstrating the most impact toward resolving an industry need receives a cash prize.
