Innovation Quest Information Session

$30,000 in prizes to Cal Poly Innovators!!! 


The Cal Poly Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship's annual Innovation Quest Competition is in high gear.  Join the ranks of Cal Poly's entrepreneurial alumni like the founders of iFixit, Passion Footwear, Grinds, Flume Technology and more who competed in this annual competition as students, and have since launched businesses that are reshaping the world we live in.  You'll be pushed to take your ideas, start developing prototypes, and communicate the business potential of your innovation.  It's not about a "business plan", it's about innovating and building a business around the innovation.  If you have an idea, or are looking to find others to work with, this is for you.  This next information session is specifically targeted to those that have a partial team but need/desire help, and those that want to be part of the competition, but may not yet be on a team.
