Eagle Works Idea Challenge – over $1,500 in prizes!

The first ever Eagle Works Idea Challenge is happening TODAY Tuesday, Nov. 12! This event will be a fast paced elevator pitch competition, where each contestant or team has 90 seconds to describe their idea for a business, product, service or other innovative concept. There’s no PowerPoint, no Q&A – just you and a microphone!

Your idea doesn’t need to be fully thought out, but it should be feasible and solve a problem. Get creative and think big!

Prizes will be awarded for 1st-3rd place, with the top prize being a $1,000 scholarship! An additional $500 prize will be given out for the idea that best embodies the university-wide Grand Challenge, Rural Reimagined.

The Idea Challenge will be TODAY Tuesday at 6 p.m. in RUC 282 (multi-purpose room). Students will sign in to pitch and order will be determined at random.

If you have any questions, please email Andrea Kruszka at akruszka@tntech.edu.
