The Rekhi Innovation Challenge ends at midnight tomorrow (Feb. 28). This year there are seven teams competing. The Rekhi Challenge is a crowdfunding competition to help promote and support student innovation and entrepreneurship through Michigan Tech’s crowdfunding site, Superior Ideas.
The team that raises the most money will receive a monetary match of up to $1,000. Additional awards will also be offered in five different categories:
- Total number of unique visitors
- Total number of unique funders
- Most social media engagement
- Most creative marketing communications strategy
- First team to raise $500.
Superior Ideas was established in 2012 to help bring University research and public service projects to life. The site uses crowdfunding to raise money and awareness for University research and public service projects that may not qualify for grant funding.
The Rekhi Innovation Challenge was developed with support from Michigan Tech alumnus and longtime donor Kanwal Rekhi. The Silicon Valley-based entrepreneur earned his master’s degree in electrical engineering from Michigan Tech in 1969.
