For more than 10 years, Muhlenberg's annual Innovation Challenge has brought together enterprising student teams in a competition for recognition and cash prizes. Students from any academic program can share their ideas that satisfy a market, social or environmental need.
Innovation and entrepreneurial thinking are valuable across disciplines, whether the ultimate goal is a small business, a high-tech startup, a non-profit with a social mission, an art gallery, a performing organization, a research lab or a school.
Students from any academic program can choose to pursue a minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship, providing the ability to:
- Exhibit practical knowledge, skills and attitudes that support innovation and entrepreneurship;
- Identify and evaluate innovative or entrepreneurial developments within their areas of interest;
- Connect with mentors who can help them move toward their personal goals;
- Understand the entrepreneurial process of putting innovative ideas into effect.
