The 11th Annual Innovation Challenge has officially launched!
The Innovation Challenge is a student pitch competition (think Shark Tank - but for idea-stage ventures) where teams will create a video pitch for their ideas that they will present to a panel of alumni, local business leaders, and investors for a chance to win up to $1000 in prize money (think $Cash$)!
This year's Innovation Challenge will be fully virtual. All teams will submit a video of their pitch for the judges to view and then attend a virtual Q&A with the judges.
The Innovation Challenge is open to ALL students in ALL majors at ANY level. This competition encourages creative thinkers to develop an innovative idea that satisfies a particular market, social, or environmental need. All ideas are welcome!
