Idea Challenge is Tuesday Nov. 12!!
The first ever Eagle Works Idea Challenge is happening on 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.
Judges will be scoring based on this rubric.
The Idea Challenge will be Tuesday at 6 p.m. in RUC 282 (multi-purpose room). Students will sign in to pitch and order will be determined at random. Pitches will start at 6:15 p.m.
Want to test out your pitch before Tuesday? We will be holding two practice sessions on Thursday, Nov. 7 and Monday Nov. 11 at 5 p.m. in the iMakerSpace (3rd floor of Volpe Library). After 4:30, the iMakerSpace is accessible via the North Stairwell (past the myTECH Helpdesk).
This will be the last Eagle Works event until January!
