InnoWeekend

Friday, October 25th – Sunday, October 27th, 2013

This weekend students from all corners of the university came together in this intense 48 hour competition. Students shared problems and ideas, and used their combined knowledge to develop new innovations around these ideas and compete for $1,000 in cash prizes. Seven excellent ventures survived this intense weekend, but there could only be three winners.

First Place ($500) – Locktopus
