Penn students compete for best healthtech idea at inaugural M&T Summit

Nearly 200 people gathered early Saturday to listen to Houston Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow talk about how big data is changing professional baseball.* Hours later and nearly as many were still there to watch a competition between seniors in the Jerome Fisher Program in Management & Technology at the University of Pennsylvania.

Students in the already competitive program already had to spend their senior year developing an engineering project and business plan, but this is the first year the students would be competing for a $2,000 prize as part of the school’s first annual M&T Summit.
