GLOBAL ENERGY FUTURE Innov8x CHALLENGE Pitch Day
August 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Innov8x CHALLENGE on September 8, 2022 from 11 am – 1 pm will feature presentations from Mines Students, pitching solutions to the most pressing Challenges and Problems facing industry today, and competing to win funding from GEFI to further pursue their innovative research.
This challenge event brings together Mines students, faculty, staff, and a world-class list of industry problem sponsors. Problem sponsors will supply students with challenges, that will push their skills to brainstorm innovative ideas by truly identifying the beneficiaries (people who would benefit when the problem is solved) and the innovation needed to successfully solve a presented challenge.
All innovative and entrepreneurial problem-solving #HelluvaEngineer students are welcome to join, including hard sciences to economics, business, and public policy. During the challenge, these #HelluvaEngineers will solve the challenge problems with the support of faculty and staff mentors, and our challenge problem sponsors.
