ready to invent?
To address the lack of opportunity, Enactus UBC Okanagan created Inventathon, an annual FREE competition where teams of 2 to 5 students, from any faculty, complete a business model to their interests. The teams are allotted a 24-hour work period to develop these models and can create anything they deem a viable business opportunity. This can include, but is not limited to, a conceptual program, application, website, prototype, and more. During the competition students are provided support through guest speakers, peer mentorship, and stress relieving activities. At the end of the 24 hours the teams presented their ideas in a 5-minute pitch presentation to a panel of judges that include professors and business professionals.
The annual Inventathon contest aims to facilitate the building of a start-up community at UBC Okanagan by encouraging innovative, sustainable, and socially impactful solutions.
