Register for ISU Innovation Prize competition
The Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship and the Agricultural Entrepreneurship Initiative are co-hosting an incentive competition called the ISU Innovation Prize for dynamic problem-solvers, thinkers and aspiring entrepreneurs. The event will take place Friday evening, April 5, through Saturday, April 6, at the ISU Economic Development Core Facility at the ISU Research Park. This year’s competition theme is “Innovation at Iowa State.” Participants will develop innovative solutions in three focus areas:
- AgTech: How do we increase productivity of the global agricultural system with less negative impact on land, energy, water and Mother Earth?
- EdTech: How do we design and reinvent learning for a better experience (quality and value) in an age of accelerating technology?
- Global Impact: How do we improve the quality of life and continue to help solve urgent issues all around the globe?
Brian McClendon, serial entrepreneur, will kick off the weekend with a keynote address from 4–5 p.m. Friday, April 5, in the Alliant Energy-Lee Liu Auditorium, Howe Hall. He will share anecdotes on applied machine learning and discuss his work with Google, Uber and various startups. The talk will also feature a sneak-peek inside Iowa State’s new Student Innovation Center.
