Student speaking at Student Pitch Competition

A shopping budget app, a machine and system to reward campus recycling, a deal-of-the-week website and micro-grid kits for the developing world are just three of the innovative ideas that have been honored during IUPUI’s “Ideas Solving Social and Economic Challenges” student idea pitch competition.

The competition is part of IUPUI’s new strategic plan to strengthen the impact through education, supporting students as entrepreneurs. The student idea pitch goal is to increase the number of graduates equipped for entrepreneurial thinking and action, whether through new businesses and job creation or as employees in existing organizations.
