At the Innovation Challenge launch party on October 23, many students attended to get more information about the challenge. In total, about 80 students with unique, creative ideas expressed an interest in participating in the year-long project. With so many students interested, they will all be looking for teams and mentors to get their project off the ground.
Ethan shared that many students who expressed interest didn’t know how to go about finding a team or a mentor. With quick thinking, the Innovation Challenge team found the perfect networking solution to connect innovators with interested team members and mentors.
Lockshin comments, “You spoke. We acted. Regis University invested in StartupTree and the platform is live!”
