InVenture Prize

PRESENTED BY

The Georgia Chamber

Supporting the next generation
of innovators & entrepreneurs.


InVenture Prize is a two-day statewide competition for college students aimed at fostering entrepreneurship and start-up creation. Initially established by the Georgia Institute of Technology as an internal competition, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce worked to take things a step further by making it accessible to colleges and universities across the state.

In Spring of 2019, student teams from over 15 schools participated in the first inaugural competition and presented their unique business solutions to a panel of judges representing esteemed business professionals. Fort Valley State University took home first place while Southern Regional Technical College took home both second place and the People’s Choice Award. Competition winners were presented with grants, scholarships, and the coveted “InVenture Cup” to proudly be displayed on Fort Valley State University’s campus for 2019.

ExtendoSocket

ExtendoSocket is a retractable extension cord designed for domestic indoor use - installed, recessed, and concealed in the wall outlet by a switch plate. This cord can be conveniently pulled and extended from the wall outlet to temporarily power a portable device when the cord on the device is not long enough to reach the wall outlet. After use, the cord can be automatically reeled back into the socket with a push button/switch, thus saving the trouble of manually rewinding an extension cord and stowing it.
