McCorquodale Co-Authors Prize Business Plan

Michael McCorquodale, an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science graduate student, has received an award for the Best Written Plan in the U-M Business School’s 2003 Pryor-Hale Business Plan Competition. McCorquodale wrote the winning entry with Jeff Wilkins, a Business School graduate student instructor. The U-M Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies sponsors the Competition.

McCorquodale’s and Wilkins’ plan presented the framework for Mobius, a company that will sell patented intellectual property to microchip makers – specifically, Mobius will sell technology that permits manufacturers to integrate clock mechanisms directly onto microprocessors.

McCorquodale’s research interests lie in microsystems technology with a focus on the convergence of commercial Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor and micromachining technologies for system-on-chip applications. He is working with Prof. Richard B. Brown.
