IIT Business Innovation Students Pitch Ideas in Classroom

Many of the brightest ideas we know of today were born in a classroom. At Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), 23 students from professor Praveen Gupta’s business innovation class bring their best ideas forward and compete against one another in a pitch contest.

The would-be entrepreneurs, many of them visitors from other counties who came to Chicago to attend engineering and business school, presented a broad array of ideas ranging from a braille platform to help blind people use iPads, solar cell phones, a phone app to detect cavities, and cloud-based television.

Judges were asked to consider the merit of the idea as well as the effectiveness, clarity, and completeness of the student presentation. ❒
