2021 Innovation Challenge open for submissions

Trine University’s Trine innovation 1 is accepting submissions for the 2021 Innovation Challenge.

Presented by Fifth Third Bank, Greater Indiana, and Trine innovation 1, the challenge, which will be a virtual pitch event this year, offers cash prizes for the top new ideas or improved concepts for business or technology. There is no entry fee.

Competition categories include Best Business Idea as well as the Best Innovation/Invention. Entries in the business category should focus on a new business idea or service. For the innovation/invention category, participants are encouraged to think about technological inventions or advances.

Adults — college students as well as community members — will have the opportunity for a $3,000 first prize and $1,000 second prize within each category.

Registration for the competition is available at trine.edu/i1challenge. For more information, email Angela Campbell at campbella@trine.edu or visit innovation1.org and click on the i1 Challenge link in the navigation menu.

The contest debuted in 2014 and has been financially supported by Fifth Third Bank, Greater Indiana.
