Plastics One is proud to be a sponsor for The Virginia Tech Global Entrepreneur Challenge held on August 16-25, 2018. During this celebration of entrepreneurship, student teams from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, England, Germany, Italy, Mexico, South Africa, Switzerland, and the USA competed in the Ninth Annual Global Entrepreneur Challenge for a $30,000 grand prize.

The grand prize of $30,000 was awarded to team GRACE from the Universidad Adolfo Ibañez, Santiago, Chile, which included Felipe Nagel, Federico Jensen, and Alex Carimán. GRACE is a biomedical device that eases tremor caused by Essential tremor and Parkinson’s Disease, therefore, helping people to recover and improve their quality of life. It doesn’t require surgeries or drugs, and it’s non-invasive. Congratulations all participants!
