Student Innovation Cup is an annual campus-wide pitching and demo competition by Pitch us your idea! Deadline for submission of entries is on March 25, 2015. 


Many universities require their students to submit “Capstone Projects and College Thesis Projects” as part of graduation. We have seen some exciting projects and wish to highlight them to the public via this competition. We also wish to encourage the students to pursue building products worth building. By showcasing them to the public, we hope to attract mentorship and support for these worthy endeavors born out of the student’s hard work and dedicated supervision from faculty.

- All members of teams entering the competition should be college students enrolled either full time or part time between academic year 2014-2015.
