CANCELLED – Innovation in Action Final Showcase

March 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This event was cancelled due to concerns associated with Covid-19.

On March 16 @ 4pm five U-M student interdisciplinary teams will pitch on stage for the chance to win in the Innovation in Action program. Students are excited to share their ideas with a live audience. From an aggregator platform to battle fast fashion & address clothing waste to providing reproductive support for adolescents to addressing Detroit’s housing needs by informing contractors of resources, the competition is fierce and it would not have been possible without your help! This event will take place in the Robertson Auditorium in the Ross School of Business and a reception will follow in the atrium to celebrate all Innovation in Action participants.

Come cheer your favorite team as they compete for a $10,000 first price, a $7,500 second prize, and a $5,000 third prize, plus a unique $2,500 Poverty Solutions Award.  Attendees can get in the mix by selecting a $1,000 Audience Choice award, chosen live during the event.

The featured speaker is Alisyn Malek, Co-founder of May Mobility, a company that uses technology to create a better, cleaner and more accessible way to get around.  Alysin was named a top automotive professional under 35 to watch by LinkedIn, and worked in electronic technology with General Motors.

This event is co sponsored by The Center for Socially Engaged Design and B+I’s +Impact Studio.
