West Virginia University Potomac State College recently won first place at the 2nd Annual Demo Day Expo. The event was sponsored by the WVU IdeaHub on the Morgantown campus and featured innovative ideas, new inventions, unique prototypes and business ventures from various colleges and departments throughout the WVU system with an entrepreneurial focus on moving West Virginia forward. Potomac State College featured its SAGE (Sustainable Agriculture Entrepreneurship) program’s new business venture -- Pure Maple Syrup Production. The team featured the process from tapping the College’s trees, cooking sap, and bottling syrup to selling their product, as well as making maple candy from 3D printed candy molds. The team was awarded $1000 to be used toward the business venture.
