Apply now for IST IdeaMaker Challenge

Build a team. Pitch an idea. Win a trip to an incubator or innovation center.

What’s it all about?

  • Cross-college teams identify a big problem and a potential solution, then pitch their idea to a panel of industry judges.
  • Only caveat is that the solution must leverage information technology as a key component of the business model.
  • This is an idea pitch and not a business plan competition, so we are looking for teams that are in the early stages of figuring out how to solve a big problem.

Who can participate?

  • Any undergraduate student currently enrolled and in good standing at Penn State is eligible to participate.
  • Teams must have a minimum of 2 students and a maximum of 5. Teams can be new or existing teams already working on a problem.
  • Teams must have members that represent at least 2 different colleges. Double major? Pick one college to represent.
