The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania held its 12th annual business plan competition on Wednesday. Eight finalists were selected from the 231 teams that applied.</p>

<p>Cortical Concepts took the grand prize of $20,000 cash, and $10,000 worth of in-kind accounting and legal services, for its plan to sell a device that would make spine surgery safer for patients with osteoporosis or weak bones.</p>

<p>Stephanie Huang, a first-year medical student at the University of Pennsylvania, described the so-called Cortical Anchor device as a kind of “drywall anchor” for the spine. She and her teammate Jason Hsu came up with the concept as undergraduate bioengineering students at Johns Hopkins University.

Very impressive.</p>

<p>Sorry about the typo. Competition.</p>

<p>Well done to them!</p>

<p>Is this competition just once a year?</p>

<p>They also beat Harvard (I know, not very difficult) for the 2010 national debate championship. Hopkins</a> Debate wins at nationals - News & Features</p>

<p>I actually took two math classes with Vivek. We always found it amusing that he would show up on the first day, and then we'd never see him again except for midterms and finals. I spoke with him briefly a few times and he's a really interesting person.</p>

<p>Seems like a smart kid!!</p>
