Congratulations to MSEC entrepreneurial teams, SurgePower Materials and TX20! The two Texas State University student groups are among the eight collegiate finalists chosen to compete in the annual Ocean Exchange BIG Pitch event Oct. 7 – 9 in Savannah, Georgia.

Surge Power Materials and TX20 student innovation teams will present in front of delegates from business, non-government organizations, academia and government. The winning pitch receives a $10,000 cash award, sponsored by the Georgia Southern University College of Business Administration.
