Tauros Engineering Wins Harvard New Venture Competition

Tauros Engineering was selected as a winner in Harvard Business School’s 17th Annual New Venture Competition (NVC). The Tauros team includes Alison Flatau, professor of aerospace engineering and associate dean for research, Clark School of Engineering, University of Maryland, undergraduate Tyler Flatau, and Harvard Business School MBA candidate Adrian Ross.

The NVC recognizes innovations for business and society and awards top finalists in two tracks: business and social enterprise. Tauros won not only the $50,000 first prize in the student business track, but also received the $2000 crowd favorite award.

Co-funded by the Maryland Industrial Partnership (MIPS) program, Tauros focuses on developing better technology for the detection and monitoring of bridge scour caused by hydraulic forces, erosion, and deposition processes, and the team already has identified customer demand for their product.

Winners were announced April 30 at the Grand Finale that took place in Harvard Business School’s Burden Auditorium, which was attended by judges, investors, entrepreneurs, and prominent alumni.
