Nineteen student teams entered the 2017-18 IISP Cybersecurty Demo Day and seventeen completed Phase 1 of a year-long contest.
Phase 1 consisted of a poster session, held Sept. 27, 2017, which allowed students to premier their research ideas and gather audience feedback. Audience vote selected three winners of "perk prizes" -- $500 -- to warm up the competition and indicate which projects hold immediate market interest. In addition to the perk prizes, Georgia Tech's Create-X awarded one, fast-track "Golden Ticket" which provides a guaranteed spot in the Create-X Startup LAUNCH summer incubator program that pays students $20,000 toward their prototype, $50,000 in legal services and provides 27 weeks of business coaching.
More prizes and more spots in Create-X are still available to win. The competition runs through April 12, 2018.
