The Timothy L. Quigg Student Inventor of the Year Award recognizes the contributions to entrepreneurship made by Tim Quigg during his 18 years as Associate Chair for Finance, Administration, and Entrepreneurship of the Computer Science Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This award, funded through the generosity of anonymous donors, will each year go to the student who has demonstrated the highest inventive skills and entrepreneurship. The award carries a cash prize, and the winner’s name is added to a plaque that hangs outside the Timothy L. Quigg Entrepreneurs’ Lounge in the Sitterson Hall lower lobby.
