Saint-Gobain, with North American headquarters in Valley Forge, Pa., launched its fourth global Innovation Competition on December 13. Organized by Saint-Gobain's NOVA External Venturing team, the competition rewards start-up businesses from around the world offering innovations in sustainable construction products, cash prizes and access to partnership opportunities with Saint-Gobain.

 

NOVA External Venturing, an international team of Saint-Gobain representatives that identify and evaluate start-up companies for strategic partnerships with all Saint-Gobain businesses, will award $50,000 to the winner, $25,000 to the second-place winner and $10,000 to the third-place winner. Winners also will work with NOVA to explore a variety of working partnerships with Saint-Gobain such as licensing, manufacturing or commercial agreements, equity investment or joint ventures.

 

From December 13 to end of June 2012, start-up companies across the globe can submit entries that demonstrate the quality of their value propositions and potential synergies with Saint-Gobain. The NOVA External Venturing team will then select eight to 12 finalists to present their innovations to a panel of judges in a 5- to 10-minute "speed-dating" session held live at the 2012 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in San Francisco, November 15. The panel of judges will consist of senior Saint-Gobain executives and experts in the building, energy and environmental sustainability industries.
