Innovation Challenge

Thursday, March 2 and Monday, March 6, 2017

The Innovation Challenge is a test of entrepreneurial creativity and a fun way of meeting new collaborators and friends. The event is open to all UNL students.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurship and the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization (CEO), the Challenge requires student teams to work on a creative task (a secret until the event) over the course of a weekend.

Pizza is provided on Challenge night, Thursday, March 2. Teams work on the Challenge over the weekend, then return on the evening of Monday, March 6 to present their solutions to a panel of judges. Prizes and trophies will be awarded to the first, second, and third place teams.
