ready to invent?
Enactus UBC Okanagan created Inventathon to address the lack of entrepreneurial opportunity on the UBC Okanagan campus.
Inventathon is an annual, 24-hour, free of cost business competition where teams of 2 to 6 individuals can apply and develop their entrepreneurial skills. This includes students from any faculty and aspiring entrepreneurs in the greater Kelowna community.
The teams must work to develop business models and can create anything they deem a viable business opportunity which caters to a specific niche market that requires their innovation. This can include but is not limited to conceptual programming, applications,websites, prototypes, and more.
During the competition, students are provided support through guest speakers, peer mentorship, and stress-relieving activities through our partnership with the School of Nursing and other external resources. At the end of the competition, the teams present their ideas in a 5-minute pitch presentation to a panel of judges that include professors and business professionals.
The annual Inventathon aims to facilitate the building of a start-up community at UBC Okanagan by encouraging innovative, sustainable, and socially impactful solutions.
