Team Volturna wins BizPlan Competition

The 2007 business plan competition wrapped up recently at Calvin. The five-person team, Volturna, won first place. Its plan centered around the development of a transmitter which sends various media from a laptop to a television via a wireless signal.

The students have made use of their cleverly engineered design not only in the BizPlan competition, but also to start a small business for electronic design. The prize money from the competition will go toward the business.

The contest was sponsored by Calvin alumnus Brett Logan, the founder of the competition; the Engineering Department; and the Enterprise Center. Planning has already begun for the competition next fall.
