One Weekend, 3 Bold Challenges, An Abundance of Rewards
Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7, 2020
Location: Student Innovation Center
The ISU INNOVATION PRIZE is an incentive competition at Iowa State University that takes place on campus. Students, faculty and staff, and the entrepreneurial community are invited to participate! The Iowa State Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship and Agricultural Entrepreneurship Initiative co-host the event.
The competition theme for the fifth annual event is Innovation at Iowa State. There will be three focus areas for participants to solve:
What to Expect?
During the event, participants will form in small groups, based on their interests and abilities, then choose one of the three Bold Challenges. Why small groups? With little to lose, entrepreneurial small teams are able to brainstorm and consistently outperform large groups when it comes to innovation. Incentive prizes are perfectly designed to harness this energy!
