The InNOLEvation® Challenge: A Business Model Competition focuses on identifying problems and potential solutions, building effective teams and precisely defining the assumptions of a new venture, testing those assumptions in the field, and then pivoting (changing) based on the lessons learned.

Students are rewarded for:

  • solving real problems with their business ideas
  • breaking down ideas into key business model assumptions
  • getting outside the building and testing assumptions with customers
  • applying customer development and lean startup practices to nail the pain and solution
  • learning to pivot (change) until arrival at a customer-validated business model
  • businesses with a social mission at their core will also receive consideration for the Jim Moran Challenge Social Venture Award
