NECINA is launching an Innovation Challenge competition in November 2020. The challenge is open for individuals or a team of any innovators. The goal is to encourage creativity and innovation that addresses a pain point in any aspect of your life, including those created by Covid-19. Covid-19 related innovation is desired but not required. You will have access to NECINA’s resources to improve your concept or transform it towards a more viable solution. All participants are eligible to access mentors during their “office hours” provided by NECINA. Mentors are experienced and accomplished professionals in their respective industries, including well-known innovative professors, angel investors, venture capitalists, series investors, senior corporate executives, and successful entrepreneurs. Five (5) submissions will win the award prizes with a total prize of up to $20,000.
