Director of Product Research Daniel Hensel took up the lead in entering the Solar Autoclave Design Team into a nation-wide medical invention competition, called the BMEidea. The competition is aimed at new medical innovations that can help the industry somehow. Most interesting, however, is that some mini-business plan is needed as part of the competition! This is where Salud del Sol comes into play. Through a selection process and as a reward for entering early, the Solar Autoclave project received a $500 stipend.
The competition is hosted by NCIIA, National Collegiate Inventors & Innovators Alliance. The team (consisting of Lori Hanna, Daniel Hensel, Matt Pittinger, Adam Ryba and Christopher Weiss) must complete a 20-page document detailing the product and its economic viability, then it will be judged by a panel. Winners will be announced June 13th, with first place earning $10,000.

Thank you for your support, and wish us luck!
