2020 Innovation Challenge Dates

The 2020 Innovation Challenge Dates have been set!

The Innovation Challenge is a competition that encourages students from all colleges and studies to bring their best ideas forward. Knowing that innovations come in all shapes and sizes, we encourage innovative thinking and entrepreneurial awareness by empowering you to pursue entrepreneurial careers. Innovation Challenge is just one of the ways to help to foster engagement with entrepreneurs and business leaders in our community.
