An Accelerate UConn Event

Faculty, postdocs, alumni, staff, students and those with an interest in solving problems are strongly encouraged to join us to identify potential problems for the solutions presented. 

Share your expertise with our presenters in this open brainstorming session.

This is a brainstorming event - with presenters:

  • Describing a problem and solution - looking for input and validation
  • Offering a technology, which is looking for a problem to solve 
  • Stating a problem, looking for a solution

Following brief  "pitches", participants will be encouraged to join a breakout session to brainstorm ways to transition those concepts into the marketplace, how the technology solution can be applied to real world problems. 

In addition, we will encourage teams to form around projects for Accelerate UConn, a program that can validate concepts and provide grants to support further concept development.
