The Innovation Challenge is a competition that brings together UCLA students from all disciplines and backgrounds to collaborate to find technology-based solutions to complex societal problems. This year, we will be focusing on two areas: health care and sustainability.
A wide spectrum of workshops will be offered, such as forming a successful team, enterprise and design, developing a business plan, storytelling and understanding sustainability and health care industries.
We understand that networking and finding teams/members may be challenging due to COVID-19. We encourage you to participate in virtual networking sessions and reach out to learn more about each other via Slack and the team formation Google docs.
Finalist teams advancing to the final round will have an opportunity to meet with industry mentors/advisors to refine their business plans and final pitches. Find the list of participating advisors here.
Advisors will be drawn from venture capitalists, angel investors, faculty, business executives, entrepreneurs and subject matter experts in healthcare and sustainability. Find the list of participating advisors here.
