Join the IIT Innovation Chase! You will be coached by expert entrepreneurs, meet students outside of your major, and have a great time! 

How Does It Work?

Teams of students from Lawrence Tech, Kettering, and University of Detroit Mercy will compete against each other during the Local Qualifying Chase. These students will be racing to complete a series of entrepreneurial challenges (such as problem-solving, presenting an elevator pitch, writing a business proposal, creating a working prototype, conducting proper market research, resource-allocation, technical knowledge testing etc.) that will be centered around a relevent problem or product.

More Information can be found at the official Innovation Chase web site LEAD THE CHASE.

What is the Prize?

The winning team from each Institution will earn a place at the Chase Finals, that will take place in Chicago in the Fall of 2011. The Finals will bring together 10 to 15 schools that will compete against each other for the title of Chicago Innovation Chase Champion.

When Does It Take Place?

Friday, February 25 – Sunday, February 27
