Twenty teams of UC Irvine students will compete Friday, May 18, in the finals for the 2007 Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth Business Plan Competition. The teams taped oral presentations of their business plans on campus last week. The videos are posted on ocregister.com where the public can view them and vote on the best plan. Winners of that vote will be submitted as the Register’s People’s Choice candidate. Plans range from molecular imprinting to a search engine for tutors. The winning plan will receive $15,000. Five other plans will receive cash prizes as well. Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth, a Newport Beach law firm, donated the prize money. Two student teams also will vie for up to $1 million in seed financing. To see the videos, click
