This years event will be fully online; participants will get a zoom link after registering to participate and share pitches.  Use the form to upload a pitch video; you have until 7pm Friday.  If your pitch is in before Friday, you will get a coupon for a beer (not quite a pitcher) at the Point!

2 team tracks

Problem to solve? We provide resources to get started and  orient the team quickly for a great start on your semester long goals.

Problem to refine? We will guide your project with resources to move from ideas to actions. Your idea/project could come to reality at the Innovation Center in 2021.

1 great opportunity

Do you need a project and don’t know what to work on? Do you want to solve or refine a problem? Do you just want to be involved in making ideas happen? This is the event for you.
