What is the Innovation Challenge?


The Challenge officially launches at the start of the Spring semester and culminates on April 12, 2018 at an exciting pitch competition here on Muhlenberg's Campus.

During the semester students will participate in workshops and will work with assigned mentors to create and refine their entrepreneurial idea. All teams must submit an "Idea Brief". The top ten teams, as selected by committee, will be given mentors and the opportunity to pitch for $1,000. 

The final Innovation Challenge evening is an exiting event where the top 10 teams will pitch their ideas to a panel of alumni, local business leaders and investors for a chance to win cash and in-kind prizes to get started turning their idea into an innovative company of tomorrow. 

The Innovation Challenge is open to ALL students in ALL majors at ANY level. This competition encourages creative thinkers to develop an innovative idea that satisfies a particular market, social, or environmental, need. All ideas are welcome.
