Middlesex University Penn State Team Challenge: Finals and Awards LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

A global collaboration between  Middlesex University (MDX) in London -  www.mdx.ac.uk and Penn State.

The MDX + PSU Innovation Challenge selected  16 Penn State students and 16 MDX students. These 32 students were formed into 8 teams , with two PSU students and two MDX students per team.

Each team defined a problem, need or pain in one of four categories, researched and defined a solution. The categories:
  •  green technology.
  •  in-the-home.
  •  social entrepreneurship.
  •  transportation.
Teams submitted a three minute video describing the problem and their solution.

Event available for viewing online.
Why:  We want to make Penn State's Global Entrepreneurship Week a truly global event!

Students will have the fun and meet the challenges of working in a geographically dispersed team, with different majors and different backgrounds to agree on a problem/need and define a compelling solution.

Grand prize:  all members of the the top MDX+PSU Team get round-trip travel paid to the 2015 Summer Jam (entrepreneurship conference) in Croatia in the last week of August - http://www.summerjamcroatia.com/
