Innovation Quest Competition Accepting Applications Until 11:59 PM, Wednesday, March 30th

Idea to Prototype to Company: all University of Connecticut students who have an innovative business or product idea are eligible to enter the fifth annual UConn Innovation Quest (iQ) competition, which will be accepting applications until 11:59 PM, Wednesday, March 30th. The First Place grand prize is $15,000, with second place at $10,000, and third place at $5,000 to put towards the start of a business. Winners of the competition and selected Finalists will be invited to participate in the iQ’s summer InQbator program, during which they will have the guidance of mentors and the opportunity to start their business.

The iQ competition was brought to UConn at the encouragement of Keith R. Fox '80, a longtime entrepreneur, executive and philanthropist who offered to sponsor the contest after seeing its success at Cal Poly. “Innovation Quest is about fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in our students with a mission of helping them to create companies and ultimately jobs here in the United States," explains Fox.
