Publish Date: 04/24/2014

Congratulations Joe Acanfora (Computer Science), Jeff Morris (Computer Science), and Paul Feagan (AIS) on your win at the VT Student Business Concept Challenge competition last week.

As described in the Roanoke Times: "[they] won $10,000 in scholarships plus summer workspace at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center. Vestigo [their real-time smartphone parking lot GPS system] uses a novel data collection system that takes advantage of inexpensive, high-quality laser rangefinders in tandem with a mobile service – to provide a real-time map of available parking. "

Their team also advances to the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Student Business Concept Challenge in August at the Hotel Roanoke, part of the Global Partnership Week celebration, that involves university students, faculty and people from all over the world.
