Rady Teams Sweep $50K Contest

Omega Sensors won first place and $30,000 in yesterday’s final round of the UCSD $50K Entrepreneurship Competition. Craig Braun ’07, VP of Sales and Marketing, successfully led his team to the win. Omega Sensors is a MEMS accelerometer start-up based on technology developed at SPAWAR, where Braun had worked as a former consultant with BearingPoint.

The second place finisher was AlisTech, an oncology biotech venture led by Nick Boyle, Brian Guzik, Vanee Pho, Mike Sitzmann and Bill Warner, all from the class of 2007. AlisTech received a $10,000 second place prize and continues to be one of Rady’s brighest Lab to Market success stories.

Both groups gave sensational presentations in yesterday’s final round at Calit2. Congratulations to our outstanding teams!
