Wharton Business Plan Competition 2006 – 2007 saw various innovative and interesting ideas. Some of them included:- Building a web-based software system that collects and integrates data from multiple software platforms into one intuitive and customizable data base
– Providing proper-fitting business attire to female executives in UK
– Flash-Memory integrated circuits that can operate at lower power and with much higher density
– Predicting likelihood of a heart attack
The winner was Neil Malhotra’s NP Solutions. His idea is to relieve patients of lower back pain with a tiny injection of a hydrogel treament into the affected disc. Back pain is one of the most common pains and is responsible for nearly 15 million physician visits a year.
Hope to see these ideas into successful business models soon!
