Attorney Anna Tharrington to serve as a judge for NCSU Lulu eGames
Anna Tharrington, an attorney at the technology law firm Whitmeyer Tuffin PLLC, has been asked to serve on the panel of judges for the Design and Prototype Challenge portion of this year’s NCSU eGames.
The NC State Entrepreneurship Initiative, in partnership with LuLu, hosts the annual eGames competition for NCSU graduate and undergraduate students to showcase their ingenuity by creatively solving real world challenges.
In the Design and Prototype Challenge, students working in teams or individually present a working prototype or product concept design for a potential new product. These products can range from high-tech creations to simple solutions for everyday problems.
Tharrington was asked to participate in this particular challenge because of her experience working with technology startups and other entrepreneurial businesses.
Several other Raleigh-area startup and economic development professionals will serve with Tharrington on the panel, which is set to judge the product designs of 14 teams in the final round of competition on April 30th, 2012. The winning team will be awarded $5,000 in prize money.
