An Idea Worth Toasting
A team of sophomores from Bryant University was awarded a $27,500 prize for developing a water purification business plan, as part of Babson College’s annual Ideas Into Action Business Plan Competition.
Led by Morgan Morris, the PURO team has designed a portable and customizable individual water filtration bottle.
The winner was selected from a group of three finalists, including two teams from Babson College.Â Each team was given six minutes to deliver a rocket pitch followed by a Q&A session in front of a judging panel.
The award was presented shortly after the presentations at the 2009 Babson Entrepreneurship Forum.
