MSc Technology Entrepreneurship students win prizes in Chile

20 August 2012

Two MSc Technology Entrepreneurship students, Felipe Escandon and Nicolas Rebolledo, have won two prizes at the Green Startup Contest in Chile for their FaceEnergy company pitch. 

The first prize is a cash one, details of which are to be announced on 22nd August, but the important prize is their award of a place in the acceleration programme of the Fundacion Chile with potential access to an investment of £75,000 in exchange for a 7% share in their FaceEnergy company. Although the potential investment is important to these budding entrepreneurs, the greater value is the chance to become part of the Fundacion's network, opening many more potential partnership opportunities. The duo's successful pitch was enhanced by support from UCL Advances.
