IdeaStorm Competitions Open to all UI Students- Deadline to Apply February 7th

A two minute pitch

IdeaStorms are entry-level pitch competitions across the University of Iowa’s campus that encourage students to share their innovative ideas with others, all while familiarizing themselves with the pitching process. They encourage students to come and share their new, never heard before ideas without the requirements of a business plan or proposal and provide a collaborative environment where students can get feedback and resources on how to make their ideas into a reality. Does your idea uniquely solve a problem? At IdeaStorm, all UI students are invited to share their business idea in two minutes or less with a panel of judges and an audience. The top ideas at each competition will be awarded cash prizes to help take their idea to the next level.

  • Spring 2020 IdeaStorm Competitions will be held on February 10 – 13.
  • The deadline to apply is February 7.
  • All UI students are eligible to participate.
