The iQ kickoff event on February 16th will feature a team of current students, faculty, and UConn alumni explaining the competition guidelines and instructions on how to enter and win their share of $30,000 in cash prizes and a valued opportunity for an invitation to the summer iQ InQbator.

To RSVP for the kickoff event, students should email iQ@uconn.edu.
The diverse portfolio of submissions over the past three years underscored the fact that ideas and innovation can come anytime, anywhere, and from anyone. Last year, more than 100 Undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. students across all campuses and 35 different academic disciplines, ranging from business and engineering students to others in the liberal arts, geoscience, medicine, pharmacy, media, communications, and the humanities brought creative ideas forward.
The iQ Program was brought to UConn at the encouragement of Keith R. Fox ’80 (Business), a longtime entrepreneur, executive, and philanthropist who offered to sponsor the program here at UConn after seeing its success at Cal Poly.
