Each spring, we ask students from across campus, “What is your big idea?” We challenge everyone from freshmen to doctoral students to dream up the next great product or service and enter their big idea in this campus-wide competition.

Members of the academic and business worlds judge each submission and the top 40 are selected as finalists. On competition day, the finalists present their concept to judges from the business community who challenge them with questions.

In addition to cash prizes, students receive valuable experience developing business concepts, writing skills and presentation abilities. Networking with the judges is also invaluable to them.

ALL SESSIONS WILL BE HELD IN THE CICE BUILDING HATCHERY
