Provost's Innovation Challenge: The $10,000 Big Idea Competition Info Session

Tuesday, January 14 at 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Lillis Business Complex, 255
955 E 13th Ave, Eugene, OR

Sponsored by the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship.

The Provost's Innovation Challenge (formerly called QuackHatch) is an annual, cross-campus business idea competition open to all University of Oregon students (undergraduates and graduate students) of all majors. Pitch your business idea for a chance to win part of a $10,000 cash pool available in seed funding.

We are particularly looking for transformative 'big ideas' that can have a significant social and/or environment impact on society. Innovative solutions that address the environment, energy, global health, agriculture and food systems, inclusion and equity, literacy, and smart cities are particularly encouraged to apply.

Learn more about the competition by attending this information session. Free pizza will be available.
