InVenture Prize 2024 Winners

The InVenture Prize Competition, held annually at the Georgia Institute of Technology, once again brought together brilliant minds, groundbreaking inventions, and a passionate audience eager to witness the future unfold. The  showcase is an opportunity to display innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurial spirit. 

At this year's competition, Lilypad Health emerged victorious. Their groundbreaking invention—an at-home, non-invasive menstrual blood screening tool—paves the way for accessible, non-invasive care.

Along with a $20k cash prize, Lilypad Health has secured a spot in CREATE-X Startup Launch, a program for Georgia Tech students, faculty, researchers, and alumni who want to launch their projects from idea stage (or beyond) into fully functioning and viable startups.

For second place, Team Makr Papr took the spot. Instead of juggling brochures, schedules, and business cards, their product allows users to utilize a smart name tag, streamlining all information in one place and aligning with the growing demand for eco-friendly solutions.

Lastly, Team Candor won the People’s Choice award. Their Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) platform is built for local governments struggling with managing citizen interactions. Team Candor’s CRM simplifies processes like complaint reporting, enhancing transparency, and responsiveness.
