Event Details

Have you ever thought you wanted to be part of a start-up business?  Come to this event to meet like-minded individuals and to learn about the UMass Innovation Challenge (UMass IC)...a business plan competition that awards over $60K annually for plans coming from students and recent alumni.  We also provide coaching and mentoring to help you make your business a reality.

Share ideas and skills to connect with possible teammates.  Hear from past winners who are building their businesses.  Learn how you can take a novel idea and enter the Innovation Challenge this Fall and/or Spring.  We will also be kicking-off our newest UMass IC event...the MinutePitch!

UMass Amherst undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni who have received a degree in the last three years are strongly encouraged to attend and compete.  No matter how far you are in the thought process, or what area of study you come from, we invite you to explore the opportunities afforded by this great competition.

The UMass co-sponsors of the Innovation Challenge are the College of Engineering; College of Natural Sciences; Isenberg School of Management; and UMass Innovation Institute. Financial support from Eugene M and Ronnie Isenberg, Wolf Greenfield; Saint-Gobain; Cantor Colburn LLP; CISCO; Raytheon; Saul Ewing LLP; Vistagy; Stephen Dunne ‘89; Provenance Venture Partners; Michael Tunstall ’82, and Karen Lauter Utgoff Consulting is gratefully acknowledged.
